One can only hope, pray and wish Paris Hilton's Twitter account was hacked...or this is a hoax...
Thanking the great Madiba for his awe inspiring "I have a dream" speech....presumably borrowed from that other black chap, Martin Luther King Jr.
OK... YEP.. CONFIRMED...It was a HOAX!!!
Paris' rep confirmed Hilton was actually on a flight to Miami when the sad news broke.
There's also a hoax Kim Kardashian tweet doing the rounds thanking Mandela for his "freedom fries...."
