Paris Hilton knows who Nelson Mandela is, you guys.
The celeb slammed the Twitter account @DeletedTweets after they posted a screengrab of what looked to be a tweet from the socialite confusing the South African leader for Martin Luther King Jr. when posting about Mandela’s death.
“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,” Hilton tweeted.
The fake tweet she’s referring to said, “RIP Nelson Mandela. Your ‘I Have a Dream’ speech was so inspiring. An amazing man.”
The tweet quickly gained buzz on the Internet, and earned nearly 15,000 retweets by the time Paris caught wind of it.
Before acknowledging the Twitter prank, Hilton did pay her respects to the Nobel Peace Prize winner, tweeting, “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.”
