Dissecting Hoax Viral News: Eminem Stabbed in NYC

By N Mark Castro

The Web is abuzz with the alleged stabbing of Grammy-award winning Rapper Eminem (Marshall Mathers) in New York City.

This is not the first time it’s happened. There have been several versions of the same message in the past, with Justin Bieber as the victim which, personally, should be done to his music.

To dispel this rumour that has gone viral in Facebook and Twitter, Eminem isn’t even in the United States when it came out.

Which makes you wonder about the finger-happy shares of your friends to news like these.

I’d unfriend them, if I were you.
