KeKe Palmer is a young movie and TV actress best known for her starring role in “Akeelah and the Bee.” Today, Twitter hooligans started a vicious rumor that she had died by hatching an #ripkekepalmer hashtag. We traced the rumor to fans of Justin Bieber, who didn’t like a couple of light-hearted tweets Palmer had published earlier in the day:

Keke Palmer isn't dead. She tweeted something flirtatious about JB & the Beliebers found out & killed her via twitter, hence #RIPKekePalmer

I'm disappointed in some Beliebers who started the rumor that Keke Palmer was dead. That's really childish. You make this fanbase look bad.

The Beliebers are shifting blame…to the OneDirectioners, of course:
