People have loved mocking Paris Hilton for over a decade now. While it seems plenty fun to pile on the silly things the heiress says, she’s right to be upset about last night’s faked tweet about Nelson Mandela.

OK! News: Paris Hilton has a new song out! Listen here.


The account @Deletedtweets photoshopped a tweet to make it look like Paris said the following last night: “RIP Nelson Mandela. Your ‘I Have A Dream’ speech was so inspiring. Amazing man.” Paris was on a plane last night when the tweet went viral, suggesting she couldn’t have posted it. Her feed backs this up, since she tweeted about boarding and landing. Paris lashed out immediately on her feed to defend herself.

Watch: Paris Hilton chats about whether she’s jealous of her former pal Kim Kardashian.

And then went on:

She has spent much of this morning retweeting fans who are supporting her and hating on the people who believe she would say that. One said, “Haters just can’t stand a rich and successful woman,so they have to tell themselves she’s stupid.The joke is on them.”
