An article saying that Young Thug was hospitalized is a hoax.

The fake report was published on Cream BMP Daily, a “satirical” website.

The article has thousands of shares and “likes” on Facebook.

The report claims Young Thug, a rapper from Atlanta, was found “in his hotel room during the alleged assault.”

But according to its disclaimer, Cream BMP Daily doesn’t post real news.

“CreamBmp.com Written by comedian CREAM. This website is comprised of satire and parody of current news and urban culture. For entertainment purposes only,” it says. 

The disclaimer further adds: “All reports and other information on this page may or may not be 100% accurate. It’s not news, it’s entertainment. All other comments are my personal opinion, but try not to take the [expletive] seriously and come at me … because I will and do sue. I’m just a young [expletive] tryna get rich.”

On Tuesday and Wednesday, a number of people were tweeting about the fake incident involving Young Thug.

Cream BMP is also responsible for a hoax that claims Floyd Mayweather’s entourage was shot up, allegedly by associates of rapper TI. The article also has no shred of truth to it, and it was also being shared heavily this week.
