Lil' Kim vs. Kim Jong Il: Rapper death rumors swirl, people can't spell

Lil-Kim.jpgFormer Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick Tweeted "Wait, Lil Kim died last night?" No, Mr. Mayor. She didn't. Rumors of Lil' Kim's death swirled all over the internet after the announcement of North Korean leader Kim Jong Il's demise.

It seems that a few users on Twitter started calling the late dictator Lil' Kim and, like a good game of telephone, it spread like wildfire. This is not the first time this happened. Anyone remember the rumors of the death of Carlos Santana after the death of kinda, sorta lookalike Libyan leader Moammar Gaddafi?

This is the second celebrity Twitter death rumor so far this week. Jon Bon Jovi just had to prove his warm-blooded status by Tweeting a picture of himself with today's date written on a piece of paper. We can't wait to see what that's photo shopped into.
