After a fake tweet supposedly from Paris Hilton ran last night following Nelson Mandela’s death at the age of 95, the former reality TV star struck back, confirming it wasn’t real and slamming the person who made it up.

“RIP Nelson Mandela. Your ‘I Have A Dream’ speech was so inspiring. An Amazing man,” the fake tweet read. After this message went viral, Hilton responded.

There was immediate suspicion that the tweet was bogus, but Hilton, 32, confirmed it by posting, “Whoever made that stupid fake tweet lacks respect to the loss the world is mourning right now. Same goes for all the blogs who ran with it.”

Her real tweet read: “Just landed & heard the sad news about Nelson Mandela. He was a true Hero & the world is a better place because of him. May he rest in peace.”
