Paris Hilton did not confuse Nelson Mandela with Martin Luther King on Twitter despite what you might have read or heard.
Shortly after the death of Mandela, a fake tweet Photoshopped to look like it belonged to Hilton began circulating online and creating controversy.
The FAKE tweet read: “RIP Nelson Mandela. Your ‘I Have A Dream’ speech was so inspiring. An amazing man.”
Paris, who was flying to Miami during that time, took to her REAL Twitter to clear the air and she seemed pretty upset by the hoax started by the @DeletedTweets account.
Just landed & heard the sad new about Nelson Mandela. He was a true Hero & the world is a better place because of him. May he rest in peace.

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.
