The social media killers are at it again.
Their latest victim, actress Manaka Ranaka who is famous for playing the role of Lucy Diale on SABC 1’s long running soap opera Generations: The Legacy.
According to fake social media posts, Ranaka was involved in a fatal car accident.
A fake Facebook post showing Ranaka’s picture next to that of a wrecked car read: “RIP Lucy Diale – Car accident in Soweto.”
The 39 year-old star was forced to prove that contrary to these rumors, she was, in fact, very much alive and kicking.
She did so through Instagram where she posted a photo of herself surrounded by her loved ones.
“Reporting Live from heaven. PS: Michael Jackson says hi,” Ranaka joked.
It has become common for celebrities to be killed on social media these days.
Other local stars who have fell victim to such rumors include Kwaito star L’vovo, award-winning Hip Hop artist Emtee, actress Terry Pheto and DJ Black Coffee, to name but a few.
