On Monday, Britney Spears joined the ranks of celebrities who have briefly died on the internet. But her fake death was unique, at least in the way it was shown to be untrue.
The performer's fake death was first announced via the somewhat obviously hacked account of Sony Music Global.
A celebrity death announcement will cause a lot of double-takes, but these two tweets are hard to believe even on first glance.
