Sony Music Entertainment caused a short frenzy early Monday morning when its Twitter account was hacked and falsely posted that Britney Spears had died.
The account, however, quickly posted a second tweet that signaled to those following the news that Sony had likely been hacked. "Britney spears is dead by accident! we will tell you more soon," read the second tweet, again with the same hashtag and emoji.
Spears' manager Adam Leber told CNN the singer was "fine and well," adding, "There have been a few Internet clowns over the years who have made similar claims about her death, but never from the official Sony Music Twitter account."
