PBS Website Hacked, Inform World That Tupac Is Still Alive

Unfortunately for us ‘Pac fans, he is not still alive contrary to the reports on the PBS Newshour website. Apparently it was a group pissed off about PBS’ 4 hour long documentary in WIkileaks so they posted this fake story, hacked account/password information, and created online havoc in general.

According to Wired:

On Sunday night, visitors to the Newshour website read the news that famed rapper Tupac Shakur had been found “alive and well” in New Zealand. The false story (Tupac died in 1996) was indexed by Google News, and spread rapidly through Facebook and Twitter, even after PBS pulled it down. “Again, our site has been hacked — please stay with us as we work on it,” read one of the Newshour’s several tweets responding to the incident Sunday.
