Fans mistakenly believed that rapper Lil Tecca had been shot dead on August 1 after reading a post that claimed as much. The rapper is still alive and well in 2022, though.

It has happened before that a celebrity has fallen victim to a death hoax. Since so many people now rely on social media for news, a lot of fake news frequently garners attention.

Lil Tecca experienced a similar situation when he became the new victim of an online death hoax.

How did the rumors that Lil’ Tecca was shot dead first circulate?

After multiple social media posts began circulating the rumor that the rapper was dead, the confusion among the followers began.

They were distributing an image of “trend news” with the heading, “Rapper Lil Tecca shot dead.” It was written on August 2, 2022.


Its text stated: “Rapper “lil tecca” was discovered dead in his own home. He reportedly took three shots to the chest. Witnesses report that the individual was tall and was seen driving a black miniature Tesla while sporting a black hoodie and black Sketchers.

The rapper is alive and doing good

For the benefit of those who may be perplexed, “trend news” is a fictitious website that is used to fabricate news stories and pull practical jokes. Actually, the article’s conclusion states: “This is a satirical website. Consider it lightly. This is a joke.

Sadly, if this part is left out when spreading the news online, people will assume it is true right away. Actually, the rapper is doing well and concentrating on his next tour of Europe, which is scheduled to begin in October.

Lil Tecca was also the subject of prior death rumors

Contrary to what an internet rumour in circulation will have you believe, Lil Tecca is still alive and well.

The Queens, New York, rapper was allegedly shot and died at JFK airport on Sunday (Sept. 15), according to a bogus news report, which sparked a flurry of responses on social media from worried and incensed followers. Tecca, however, confirmed his continued existence to everyone via his Twitter account after learning of the situation.

He stated on Monday that “niggas believe anything onna internet.”

The initial claim was published on the fake news website, where anyone may sign up and publish a false story.
