The story is a copy of a previous fake story that claimed there was a shitty onstage incident in Jacksonville, Florida.
The Alberta Times website was only registered in June, and is not a real local news outlet. It mixes real local headlines with made-to-go-viral hoaxes. The real posts are hidden behind a paywall, but it's impossible to sign up for a subscription. The hoaxes, on the other hand, have the full text.
Some quickly caught on to the deception.
Still, people have been sharing — and falling for — the hoax.
A local radio station helped spread the fake story by posting it to its Facebook page and asking if it was real.
