BASELESS rumors claiming that singer Jill Scott’s sex tape has been leaked swept the internet, sending Twitter users into a frenzy.
One social media user falsely claimed on Tuesday that there was an X-rated clip of the singer floating online.
Some made cruel jokes and shared memes as the fake rumors went viral, according to Meaww.
Twitter users were left furious after realizing it’s a sick hoax.
One person said: “Whoever started that Jill Scott rumor, count your days.”
While another commented: “I was wondering how 2022 was going to kick off, my people lying about a Jill Scott $ex tape #jillscott (sic).”
A third said: “It’s no Jill Scott sex tape that mf was lying. How you gone started a rumor like that?! Report his account (sic).”
Scott has yet to address the fake rumors on her Twitter account.
Her last tweet was on New Years Day where she said: “Joyfully Abundant, Remarkably Healthy, New Year Love Village!!! Speak specifics.
“We’re manifesting like crazy round here. BE SUUPPPEERRRR SPECIFIC.”
The singer’s last Instagram post was on December 8 and the singer hasn’t uploaded any clips to her Stories.
Scott is also a poet and an actress. Her 2000 debut album Who Is Jill Scott: Words and Sounds Vol. 1 went platinum.
Her albums Beautifully Human: Words and Sounds Vol.2 and The Real Thing: Words and Sounds Vol. 3 have both achieved gold status.
The hoax comes just months after fake rumors claiming that the rapper Playboi Carti had died swirled online.
A report from a fake news site claimed that the Atlanta rapper, real name Jordan Terrell Carter, was found unresponsive in his hotel room. The report was false.
It’s not known who created the post, but it received more than 28,000 shares, according to HITC.
It’s not the first time sick rumors have circulated regarding the rapper’s health and wellbeing.
In 2019, a fake news article claimed that Carti had been killed in a car accident in Los Angeles, according to Heavy.
The report alleged that the rapper was driving the vehicle and was under the influence of “many controlled substances” when the crash happened. Again, the report is false.
Many celebrities have had to confirm that they are alive and well after sick death rumors circulated online.
In 2009 it was reported that Jeff Goldblum had died after falling from a cliff in New Zealand.
Fans of the Jurassic Park actor rushed to pay their condolences before realizing it was a sick joke.
Jeff appeared to laugh off the incident as he said: “No one will miss Jeff Goldblum more than me.
In 2011, it was mistakenly reported that Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson had fallen off a mountain in New Zealand.
The legendary wrestler and Hollywood actor slammed the trolls online as he tweeted: “I would love to meet the person who is starting rumors of my death — to show them how a dead foot feels up their a**.”
And, it was falsely reported in 2014 that Home Alone star Macaulay Culkin died in his New York City apartment.
He and his band The Pizza Underground responded by posting two-staged photos that parodied the 1989 comedy Weekend at Bernie’s.
Culkin also shared a selfie, adding: “We’re on tour you silly people.”
