The Paris Hilton Tweet Confusing Nelson Mandela With Martin Luther King Is Fake

Paris hasn’t actually tweeted about Mandela’s death yet.

1. A fake tweet alleging to be from Paris Hilton in which she confuses Nelson Mandela for Martin Luther King, Jr. was spread online by a Twitter account called @DeletedTweets.

2. According to Hilton’s publicist, she was on a flight for five hours and was not online when news of Mandela’s death broke.

Just landed & heard the sad new about Nelson Mandela. He was a true Hero & the world is a better place because of him. May he rest in peace.

Whoever made that stupid fake tweet lacks respect to the loss the world is mourning right now. Same goes for all the blogs who ran with it.
