This is why we should always double-check news articles.

NBA stars Karl Anthony-Towns and Montrezl Harrell were misled by fake news, following the reports that rapper DMX had already passed away.

DMX’s manager, Steve Rifkind, was quick to squash the rumors of his client’s passing after the hashtags “RIP DMX” and “Rest in Power DMX” became a trending topic.

Rifkind said that DMX is still in a critical condition after an apparent overdose, but he is still alive thanks to his life support.

The Minnesota Timberwolves first expressed his condolences in a now-delete tweet, but the reigning Sixth Man of the Year has yet to remove his tweet despite clearing the air about the 50 year old’s status.

DMX, whose real name is Earl Simmons, rose to the top of Billboard charts with hits like “Party Up” and “X Gon’ Give It to Ya”.
