A sick hoax video has gone viral showing 18 year old Jaden Smith apparently taking his own life.
Bearing in mind the new movie of Jaden's Dad, Will Smith is called Suicide Squad, it's a pretty macabre stunt that people have been taken in by.
The video doing the rounds on Facebook shows Smith Jnr tearfully gazing into the camera saying goodbye to his famous father before hanging himself.
What makes the video slightly more credible is that the spam app gets permission to post on the user's Facebook page, meaning it shows up in their news feed, and all their friends see it and think it's real and re-share it.
Thankfully though the rapper and actor is alive and well. and as Popdust previously reported, happily dating Sarah Snyder. She came under fire recently when old pictures of her in bed with her ex surfaced, and and it seems that rumors of her cheating on him gained momentum, which may have triggered this suicide hoax.
Jaden and Sarah look very happy together
Jaden has been appearing on red carpets alongside Will recently to promote Suicide Squad, and he is also working on a Netflix show of his own. The Get Down is a musical drama series created by Baz Lurhmann and premieres on August 12
What is weird though, is this isn't the first time there's been a rumor about Jaden Smith dying. In 2011 there was another fake story suggesting that he had died in a skiing accident. Why won't these rumors quit?
The latest hoax has been circulating over the last week and it seems that young Smith has got wind of them, posting in his usual profound way on Twitter;
I Can't Even Walk Around Outside With My Best Friends And Enjoy Myself Anymore Unless I'm In The Mountains Where I Belong. |||— Jaden Smith (@Jaden Smith)1470343767.0
Happy birthday to the world's biggest genre
On this day in 1973, Clive Campbell, the Jamaican-American "selector" known as DJ Kool Herc, hosted a "back to school jam" at 1520 Sedgewick Avenue in the Boogie Down Bronx of New York City.
Armed with a booming sound system and reggae beats, Herc– a shortened nickname for "Hercules"– commanded insatiable audiences across the South Bronx with his unique looping technique called the "Merry-Go Round." "[I knew that] they were waiting for this particular break," Herc later said, "and I got a couple of records that got the same break up in it. I wonder how it would be if I put them all together."

Raymond's popularity sheds light on a bizarre underside of the Animal Crossing fandom.
Raymond is a smug cat who highlights his heterochromatic eyes with hipster glasses.
He is essentially the same exact character as every other Animal Crossing villager with a "Smug" personality type, but again, and this is very important, Raymond is a cat with heterochromatic eyes and hipster glasses. As such, he has completely broken the Animal Crossing community.
