The interwebs and Social Networking sites including Facebook are burning up with the news slain rapper Tupac Shakur is “alive and well” in New Zealand. We all know that Tupac was shot and killed 15 years ago in Vegas. Still Machiavellian rumors surround this musical legend.
The report of Tupac’s reappearance was first reported on PBS NewsHour online. We know now PBS NewsHour online was hacked by a group called The Lulz Boat.
The Lulz Boat posted the story “Tupac still alive in New Zealand” with a picture of the slain rapper. The post remained on the PBS NewsHour website for several hours. The story also reported rapper Biggie Smalls lived in the same small town with Tupac Shakur in New Zealand.
The Lulz Boat posted a statement on Twitter, they said the hacking was a response to PBS’ treatment of secret-spiller organization Wikileaks in a recent Frontline documentary called WikiSecrets. The commenter also stated “We just finished watching WikiSecrets and were less than impressed. We decided to sail our Lulz Boat over to the PBS servers for further… perusing,”
So for the record Tupac Shakur is still dead.
