What the what?! Why on earth anyone would EVER want to fake a story like this is beyond us, but we're just happy to know that designer Prabal Gurung is safe and sound.
Reports (like the obvi fake one shown above) leaked yesterday on Google Alerts that the designer had been involved in fatal car accident. The phony Global Associated News post states Gurung was identified by paramedics after flipping over a friend's car on the highway.
Gurung took to Twitter shortly after to reassure his fans that he is, indeed, alive and well: "Hi everyone I am safe n sound. Pls don't blv the spammed google alert ie going around proclaiming my death in a car crash.I found out about the alert when my fam n friends called me worried n crying just now. Its a horrible spam n I can't even imagine why or who would even do it but please be fully assured I am perfectly fine." (sic)
All we have to say is, "Thank goodness!"
Can you guys believe this?!
