If you're a Stan and you jumped on Twitter today, you got a scare as "ripeminem" has been trending.
But the hashtag seems to have nothing to do with Eminem's issues with Machine Gun Kelly, Nick Cannon, Lord Jamar or a life of excess ending a life early.
It all appears to be some kind of a joke in which the K-Pop Twitter mob declares a celebrity dead and then posts other photos of celebrities that look sorta like him.

So the Stans can breathe a sigh of relief. Eminem is not dead.
