Daddy Yankee is not dead and Daddy Yankee has not died in a car crash.
Here’s the backstory to how this rumor started. Daddy Yankee is not a very tech savvy or interested person when it comes to Twitter. Apparently, not all his fans understand this fact.
During the day, a traffic accident took place and someone Tweeted ‘live’ from the scene: “OMG, DADDY YANKEE DIED IN THIS CAR CRASH”. While the Twitpic that accompanied that message has since been removed, the story took on a burning popularity like a fire racing through Souther California’s chapparal.
As fan after fan tweeted @DaddyYankee with no response, the rumor only built strength. How could it be a celebrity could go on without talking about himself for over an hour? When everything reached the crucial 20 hours without a tweet mark, everyone was pretty sure the story was true. Only one problem.
Daddy Yankee is not dead. He just doesn’t feel the need to live on Twitter, ya twits.
