An article saying Nash Grier, the YouTube and Vine star, has died is fake.

It was posted on Most Extreme News, which doesn’t post real news stories.

The bogus article reads: “Nash Grier, born December 28, 1997 had became nationally known in 2013 for his videos on Vine. Tragically Nash was found dead early today behind a restaurant in Los Angeles, California. Investigators are not ruling out the possibility of a drug overdose at this point. Family, friends and fans are overwhelmed with grief and shocked by this tragic event. Stay Tuned to MostExtremeNews.com for more as this story develops. #RipNash”

It also includes what appears to be a Photoshopped image of Grier’s face on a news bulletin.

The website only posts fake news stories that have mostly been taken from other websites.

On Twitter and other social media sites, fans of Grier were tweeting and sharing a screenshot of the article. They were also saying things like “RIP Nash Grier.”

“Apparently nash grier was found dead behind a restaurant poor nash,” one person wrote on Twitter.

Said another, “Watching TV& it said Nash Grier was found dead. wtf?”

Another added: “Nash Grier is dead.”

For his part, Grier has been tweeting Saturday. “Make sure you’re subscribed to my channel to be notified when all my videos are released!” he wrote.
