Claudia Jordan deleted her tweet and apologized after saying DMX had died. But reports have emerged that he is still on life support.

DMX is in a vegetative state in an intensive care unit in White Plains, NY, after suffering a heart attack following an apparent drug overdose.

According to reports, brain scans show very little brain activity. If that's the case, the rapper is no longer with us. But Jordan jumped the gun by tweeting out he is dead before the family acknowledged he was taken off life support.

"Rest in Paradise DMX," she wrote on Tuesday, April 6.

Maybe she knows something the public doesn't know? Still, it's common decency to wait until the family releases a statement acknowledging that he was taken off of life support.

Twitter was not having any of the disrespect toward a rap legend who is still above ground. Fans tore the former beauty queen a new one.

"Now look at you getting chewed up," tweeted one follower. Another follower added: "Chewed up like a dollar store steak."

Bond girl Tanya Roberts died Monday night at L.A.'s Cedars-Sinai Hospital following a bizarre turn of events that included her domestic partner incorrectly telling her rep she had died the day before.

Roberts, 65, was rushed to hospital in Los Angeles on Christmas Eve, after collapsing at home following a walk with her dog.

Her partner, Lance O'Brien, told TMZ Roberts was taken off life support Sunday night, after contracting a urinary tract infection that got "out of control".

He said he got a call from one of Tanya's doctor's Monday night, just after 9 PM, telling him Tanya had passed.

O'Brien said he'd visited her in the hospital earlier on Sunday, and she suddenly opened her eyes and then shut them and he saw her fade away. He told a reporter she had "the prettiest eyes."

O'Brien says he believed she was dead and he left the hospital without speaking to medical staff. Tanya's publicist, Mike Pingel, who picked O'Brien up from the hospital, says he told him, "She died in my arms."

After Roberts' death made headlines all over the world, O'Brien got a phone call Monday from Cedars, informing him Tanya was still alive.

O'Brien was speaking to Inside Edition when he got the call from the hospital.

The call was caught on camera during the interview, as O'Brien can be heard saying: "Now, you are telling me she's alive?"

He then told his interviewer: "The hospital is telling me she is alive. They are calling me from the ICU team."

Despite the good news that Roberts was still alive, O'Brien told the New York Post that her situation was still hopeless, and that the Charlie's Angels star will not survive.

Robert's official death was confirmed Monday night, Jan. 4.

Roberts will be remembered for much more than her bizarre final hours. She was a go-to model, appearing as Bond girl Stacey Sutton opposite Roger Moore in "A View to a Kill." She also posed for Playboy and did ads for Clairol, Cool Ray sunglasses, Excedrin and Ultra Brite.

Tanya was married to Barry Roberts for several years. Their union produced no children before his death in 2006.

She's survived by O'Brien and her sister, Barbara Chase

Lisa Maffia apologized to fans for "accidentally" announcing she was diagnosed with cervical cancer.

She said her mother has terminal cervical cancer, not her, and that her post was a mistaken.

The British musician and TV personality made headlines all over the world when she took to her Instagram account to say she was diagnosed with cervical cancer.

The former So Solid Crew star, 41, said she was in a hospital for a colposcopy this week.

"I never miss a smear and I unfortunately have cervical cancer," she wrote. She added that doctors "burned" away the cancerous cells in her cervix.

"So now I'm even more cautious. This is just a reminder to anyone that maybe has forgotten to get tested! It's not a game," she wrote.

"Just like that, I am already out. That was so quick and easy," she wrote after her doctor's appointment.

"As you can see, I have been really upset, my mum has cancer, terminal cancer. It is so important to make sure you keep up to date with your smear tests and any checks in general on your health and just be mindful of your health because it can happen to anyone."

Lisa received an outpouring of support from concerned fans all over the world who expressed their support for the singer/rapper.

But in a video shared on her Instagram page, the musician told her 72,000 followers she made a "terrible mistake".

"I sincerely apologize for making the terrible mistake of not finishing my sentence," she said, wiping away tears.

"I was in such an overwhelming state earlier that when I was posting I didn't really look back at my text, because it was coming from the heart - you just write sometimes."

She added:

"It said I have cervical cancer. I don't have cervical cancer. I had abnormal cells which needed to be burnt away. I was supposed to say there is cervical cancer in my family. I really do apologize to the hundreds of people."

She explained why she didn't correct her post earlier:

"I've been driving home so I haven't looked at my phone. I haven't got cervical cancer."

The original post has since been deleted.

Black Twitter is outraged over a misinterpretation of a tweet by President Donald Trump on Wednesday.

First the misinterpretation: "Trump said 'suburban housewives will vote for me to protect black democrats from putting housing nearby."

What Trump really tweeted:

"The 'suburban housewife' will be voting for me. They want safety & are thrilled that I ended the long running program where low income housing would invade their neighborhood. Biden would reinstall it, in a bigger form, with Corey Booker in charge!"

Trump criticized the Obama/Biden administration's efforts to place low-income families in suburban neighborhoods.

The issue was one of the factors that drove voters to the polls to elect Trump as president in 2016.

But, as one Twitter user pointed out, the majority of people living in low-income housing are white.

User @pastordlamb writes: "Anyone who sees the words 'low income housing' and automatically thinks of black people is racist. We have numerous low income housing projects in our city and they are 90% white occupied."

Another user wrote: "Never underestimate the fear they have of POC. They hate and fear us. He know what he is doing, they will vote for him because he will build a wall in the suburbs to keep us out. They are all part of the problem in Amerikkka."

And a third user tweeted: "Donald Trump wants to keep "low income housing" out of the suburbs. Because there's nothing scarier than that... is there?"

Star Wars actor Billy Dee Williams misspoke when he claimed to be "gender fluid." The senior citizen has backtracked on his comments, insisting he didn't fully understand what being gender fluid meant.

In an interview with Esquire magazine, the 82-year-old AARP cardholder explained that he uses both male and female pronouns when referring to himself.

Williams said, "I think of myself as a relatively colorful character who doesn't take himself or herself too seriously... And you see I say 'himself' and 'herself,' because I also see myself as feminine as well as masculine."

There were reports of Williams' elderly female fans falling out over the news that he might be a cross-dresser or go both ways.

The LGBT+ community was ecstatic and praised Williams for being his authentic self. He was portrayed as an "elder gay" speaking his truth. Filmmaker and friend J.J. Abrams congratulated Williams for his "openness".

But, in a later interview with The Undefeated, Williams clarified his comments, insisting he was simply talking about "men getting in touch with their softer side of themselves".

"I was talking about men getting in touch with the female side of themselves. I wasn't talking about sex, I wasn't talking about being gay or straight," he said.

Many social media users suspect Williams trolled his fans to promote his news film, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, in which he reprises his role as Lando Calrissian.

The film opens in theaters in 2 weeks.

Pasco County Sheriff's Office

The Pasco County Sheriff's Department was forced to admit their error after mislabelling actress Stacey Dash as "white" on their arrest report.

The 'Clueless' star pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor domestic battery charge, after she was arrested for allegedly slapping and scratching her husband, attorney Jeffrey Marty at their New Port Richey, Florida home on Sunday.

The actress was bonded out of jail by her husband on Monday morning, Sept. 30.

When filling out the arrest report, a deputy mistakenly labeled Dash - who has a Black father and Mexican mother - as "white" on the booking form.

The unfortunate error resulted in a fierce genetics debate on social media. Black Twitter users, who previously revoked Dash's Black card for being a Trump supporter, were now angry that Dash appeared to abandon the Black community.

As the debate raged on the blogs on Wednesday, a spokesperson for the Pasco Sheriff's Department admitted the mistake, explaining:

"Stacey Dash was never asked her race by the arresting deputy, nor did she volunteer any information about her race. The arresting deputy assumed that she was Hispanic.

"However, the Pasco Sheriff's Office follows the Department of Justice Uniform Crime Reporting standards and, according to the DOJ reporting requirements the only allowable races are: Asian/Hawaiian/Pacific Islander, Black/African American, American Indian/Alaskan Native, Unknown, or White."

Hispanic and Mexican are not races. But the sheriff's representative added that reports do list a Hispanic option if a deputy fills out the booking form by hand. The option is not available on digital (online) copies, so her race will likely not be updated.

Deputies also mistook the star's middle name for her surname, incorrectly calling her Stacey Dash Lauretta. This led to speculation that the booking sheet was Photoshopped.

Dash has been given access to a public defender because she applied for indigent status and can't afford a lawyer.

Dash has fallen on hard times since she was fired as a political pundit on Fox News in 2017.

Sir Keith Holman writes in to correct my earlier post on Beyonce Knowles presenting Colin Kaepernick with the SI Muhammad Ali Award.

Beyonce wore a black sequined dress similar to the sequined jumpsuit worn by pop icon Michael Jackson in his "Rock With You" music video. I incorrectly stated MJ's jumpsuit was designed by Michael Bush (of Tompkins & Bush).
