Justin Bieber Beached Whale Comment - Facebook Rumour
Links to a news article - that claim pop star Justin Bieber referred to an overweight female as a “beached whale” leading to the girl committing suicide - are circulating Facebook.
The report claims that Bieber went up to a sunbathing girl identified as Julie Gunn in an Australian holiday resort, before berating the girl. Soon after the incident the report claims Julie was found dead by her roommate after killing herself through a drugs overdose.
However the story, printed by The National Report (www.natonalreport.net) is completely fake, as are all stories in the site. The disclaimer belonging to the site reads in part
…news articles contained within National Report are fiction, and presumably fake news…
The National Report has in the past been responsible for starting or fuelling other online rumours, including the rumour that Obama was trying to implant US citizens with RFID chips and rumours about “rape festivals” in India.
Readers are advised to simply be aware than any article from National Report is likely to be entirely fabricated and thus should not be circulated under the pretence of being genuine.
