AP quotes fake Instagram account in Paul Walker obit
The Associated Press quoted a fake Vin Diesel Instagram account in an obit for actor Paul Walker:
In a Dec. 1 obituary for Paul Walker, The Associated Press reported erroneously that Walker's "Fast & Furious" co-star Vin Diesel reacted to Walker's death in a message on Instagram. The account that was quoted is a fake and does not represent Diesel, said his publicist. Diesel has since posted a message on his Facebook page, verified by the publicist, honoring Walker "as the brother you were, on and off screen."
