Despite rumors that circulated the Twittersphere last week, newly-appointed North Korean dictator, Kim Jong-un, is alive and well.

U.S. military officials have shot down rumors that Kim, the newly installed North Korean leader, was assassinated during a visit to China.

Officials told late Friday that they found no evidence that the “supreme leader” was dead, despite what the unsuspecting masses were busy tweeting.

The story went that assassins barged into the dictator’s room and shot him. The rumors began on microblogging site Weibo in China, then jumped to Twitter, where they were even spread by a fake BBC news account, lending them the sheen of credibility.

Honestly, we don’t wish death upon nobody, not even this Miss Piggy lookin’ mufucka. But damn, what if right?
