Paris Hilton is not happy about this Nelson Mandela tweet hoax

A tweet reportedly from the socialite attributing Luther King’s “I Have A Dream” speech to Mandela was a hoax.

SINCE THE ANNOUNCEMENT of Nelson Mandela’s death last night, there have been waves of tributes to the anti-Apartheid politician on social media from celebrities and normal folk alike.

The Twitter account @DeletedTweets (who have now mysteriously deleted their account) posted a screengrab of this tweet reportedly from Paris Hilton, in which the socialite confuses Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King Jr:

The tweet promptly went viral but if anyone had actually checked Hilton’s account at the time, it would have shown that the last tweet was about her landing in Miami.

Naturally, Paris is less than pleased at being painted as an airhead yet again:
