TMZ Lil Wayne
Posted on March 16, 2013 ยท Posted in Reporting

TMZ had arguably one of the biggest stories of their existence. Lil Wayne on his deathbed and his mother was flying in to see her son for the final time. Last rites were being prepared and Lil Wayne (real name Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr.) had just hours to live.

Lil Wayne was readmitted to the hospital due to a recurrence of seizures he experienced earlier in the week but he was far from dying. Apparently someone from Lil Wayne’s camp was trying to contact the celebrity news site to clarify the situation but the story broke before they could get in contact. Confusion set in with TMZ finally retracting the deathbed post and Weezy tweeting to fans that he was alright.

TMZ’s website still has Lil Wayne as the lead with the following blurb

6:30 PM PT — Sources at the hospital tell us Wayne is still in critical condition in the ICU … but stabilizing.

We’re told the prognosis is uncertain.

Wayne is sleeping right now … which is odd, because he just tweeted saying he’s OK and thanking people for the prayers and love.

5:16 PM PT — Wayne’s mother is currently on a plane flying to Los Angeles — and we’re told all major decisions about Wayne’s health (including the decision to discontinue life support) will not be made until she arrives.

The 6:30PM update is what pisses me off about the whole situation. YOU GOT IT WRONG. ADMIT IT AND MOVE ON. Don’t post some 5-year-old style retort to try and save face.

Of course do we expect anything less from a blog about trash, written by trash?
