Justin Bieber Tops in Twitter Celebrity Death Rumors -

Justin Bieber Death

Justin Bieber as Jason McCann Dies On ‘CSI’ 2011

Justin Bieber is not dead. But he is the celeb most often reported to be dead, according to a study of death rumors on Twitter.

According to Synthesio, a global social media and analysis company — Justin’s death is falsely reported roughly every two weeks.

Synthesio tracked #RIP celebrity rumor tweets that had been retweeted more than 500 times. The top reason cited for Justin’s death was a drug overdose, with crashing his Ferrari coming in a close second.

Second on the dead-but-not-dead list was Zayn Malik of One Direction. Rihanna and Chris Brown also were regularly reported deceased in the past three months.

Catriona Oldershaw, UK managing director of Synthesio, said in a statement:

Rumors of major celebrity deaths are a constant feature of Twitter. But what is interesting about Justin Bieber is how prevalent and regular the reports are. The volume of tweets is also increasing, with the latest rumor spread by 2,600 users in one day. 

Reports of Zayn Malik’s demise are particularly strange as he is the only member of 1D who is a regular subject of these rumors. It may be because Zayn is the only band member who is not a regular tweeter, meaning that rumors about him are harder to dispel quickly.

There are a number of reasons these rumors spread. In Justin and Zayn’s case, their young and fanatical fan base is probably one of the major factors, with vocal users quick to pass on information without fact-checking. In terms of where the rumors come from in the first place, wider research indicates that it’s often rival fans starting RIP rumors as a form of trolling.

  • Barasha

    Stop spreading this stupid rumors about justin…he dont take drugs

    • Hmmm

      Yes he does and you know it, you know what you are all in complete denial. A single piece of shit that crops up here is downgraded because you blind people cannot face facts.

      Justin Bieber has the most blind, idiotic fan base and that is why he is so hated, it’s because you are so painful, you can’t controlled, most of you are 10 year old girls who cry and type so furiously to defend this ticking time bomb.

      The guy will face the music, the drugs, the spitting, assault charges, nude photos. Your one teen idol is nothing but a crumbling mess and you all can’t see it.

      The time will come and the normal people who watch idiots like you kill music with your threats will end.

  • ivan

    See you can’t believe everything you read about him. We should always fact check. Some sites such as gossip cop or the inquisitr do a great job reporting on celebrities; there may be others.

    This reminds me of the time Justin didn’t tweet for a day and people thought he was dead Lool…I don’t get why anyone would do such a thing spreading rumors about sumthing not true,its just sickening…

  • Mrs.tristen Bieber

    Justin is not dead and he gave me his number

  • King Candy

    This is really making me shake my head. People starting rumors that someone’s dead is ridiculous. Even if you don’t like the person, wishing death on them is inhuman to me. I don’t like Zayn Malik, but I don’t want him dead. I guess I have a soft heart. Anyway, don’t believe everything you’re told!

  • Nicki

    This is so stupid. Rumors all the time just get a life please. Leave people alone. Justin, Zayn, Chris brown,and Rihanna haven’t done nothing to y’all.

  • Belieber

    Wow, that is ridiculous. Justin does not do drugs. Just because somebody does not like a specific one, doesn’t’ mean they have to start the rumors up. It’s stupid. It’s not cool

  • *cassiethediva*

    I love everyone who likes justin bieber

  • FatimaBieberOfficial

    Really like i mean what the hell is wrong with this world? All these stupid rumors are so stupid. People really need to leave celebrities alone. Leave Justin Bieber most importantly alone. All the other celebrities leave them alone too they have not did shit to you so shut the hell up and go SIT DOWN. I LOVE JUSTIN BIEBER!

  • CINTHYA BIEBER

    OMB PLEASE DONT TELL ME THIS IS TRUE!!! I AM LIKE CRYING RITE NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • SamanthaLuvsJustin

      It’s not true, Justin isn’t dead don’t listen to all of the rumors about Justin. Haters just like to rile up the fans to start fights bcuz they think it’s funny.

  • ivan

    It’s easy to post a false story that then spreads like wildfire all over the media and internet. I have seen a lot of examples of that. Don’t believe rumors or stories like the spitting on fans report unless confirmed by Justin or his associates. This spitting rumor did some harm to Justin’s reputation even among some weak Believers. TMZ was responsible for that and never admitted they had no proof he spat on anyone whereas over a dozen persons that were there said he did not.

  • Kristathedancer

    I love justin and he is not dead so it is a bad romer
