An article saying rapper Meek Mill was again arrested “for drug possession after being free for only one day” is fake.
The bogus report was posted on Huzlers.com, a satirical website that often posts fake news stories about rappers.
It has a disclaimer (at the bottom of each page under “About US”), which says: “Huzlers.com is a combination of real shocking news and satirical entertainment to keep its visitors in a state of disbelief.”
The article, in part, also reads: “The rapper was reportedly arrested for possession of illegal drugs after being found carrying cocaine and marijuana. Meek Mill apparently dropped a small bag filled with marijuana in front of a two police officers as they were walking right by him before they searched him and found cocaine on him. Yes, it seems as though Meek Mill is perhaps the unluckiest man of all time.”
It includes fake quotes from Meek, and fake quotes from a fake police officer.
According to Fox Philly, Meek Mill was released from prison this week. A prison spokesperson said Meek, whose real name is Robert Williams, was let out at 4 p.m. Tuesday.
He was originally sentenced to three to six months for a probation violation.
Judge Genese Brinkley ordered him to take “etiquette classes” before sending him to jail in July after he had an outburst at a parole office.
The prison term delayed his second album, ” Dreams Worth More Than Money.”
