A fake tweet alleging to be from Paris Hilton in which she confuses Nelson Mandela for Martin Luther King, Jr. was spread online by a Twitter account called @DeletedTweets.

According to Hilton's publicist, she was on a flight for five hours and was not online when news of Mandela's death broke.

@DeletedTweets has tweeted eight times so far, and all the tweets are fake.

Update: Hilton tweeted about Mandela's death and responded to the fake tweet.

Just landed & heard the sad new about Nelson Mandela. He was a true Hero & the world is a better place because of him. May he rest in peace.

Whoever made that stupid fake tweet lacks respect to the loss the world is mourning right now. Same goes for all the blogs who ran with it.
