Mike Posner HAS NOT Passed Away After 'Taking Pill Overdose In Ibiza'

Fact Check

  • by: Jeremy Smith

The folks over at Waterford Whispers News are back at it again with the lies, this time stating "Mike Posner Passes Away After 'Taking Pill Overdose In Ibiza'." The story is a complete HOAX so Lead Stories is here to debunk it for all the Mike Posner fans out there. The NOT TRUE story is obviously a play on Posner's recent hit "I Took A Pill In Ibiza," with most of the story coming from the song's lyrics.

The NOT TRUE story starts with:

AMERICAN singer, songwriter, and record producer Mike Posner has passed away taking a pill drug overdose in Ibiza, in a bid to show Avicii he was cool, WWN has learned. It is understood the singer took a pill in Ibiza, believing it "was something to do", but collapsed shortly after in a busy nightclub, like he had something to prove.

We'll stop there, but suffice it to say the story is completely NOT TRUE. Looking in the comments section of the HOAX story shows that people actually believe this stupidity and continue to spread the lie. Meanwhile, in the real world, Posner continues to spread cheer through social media:
