People Are Panicking Over Claims That A YouTuber Was Kidnapped By ISIS
I don't even know where to begin with this.
Overnight, an online panic broke out about the fate of YouTube star Marina Joyce, a 19-year-old Briton best known for her beauty vlogs.
The panic was sparked by a theory that Joyce whispered "help me" 13 seconds into her latest video.
Soon there were hundreds of tweets and blogs making the claim that Joyce had been kidnapped and was being forced to make videos against her will. The hashtag #SaveMarinaJoyce began to trend worldwide.
The Metropolitan police confirmed on Wednesday morning that Joyce is in fact safe.
As has Joyce herself.
She also attempted to reassure fans with a livestream broadcast on Wednesday morning.
The panic had escalated last night following a tweet from Joyce's account inviting people to meet her at 6:30am in Bethnal Green, London.
It appears she was in fact tweeting about a morning dance event that's due to happen on 3 August in the area.
