The legendary basketball player Kobe Bryant died on Sunday in a helicopter crash alongside his 13-year old daughter, Gianna Maria-Onore Bryant. According to media reports, none survived the crash — including seven others who were aboard the helicopter.

In a spine chilling prediction, a twitter user — dotNoso — reportedly predicted that Kobe would ‘end up dying in a helicopter crash’.

Since the NBA star’s death, the tweet has gone viral. DotNoso has apologised for the tweet but hasn’t removed it from the social networking platform despite multiple requests from fans.


Is the tweet real?
Some are alleging that the status is fake. The tweet was uploaded using Cabron V2.5 in 2012. However, Carbon V2.4.31 wasn’t released until 2015.

However, the time stamp on the tweet still reads 13 November 2012.

A review of Google Search also supports the assertion that the tweet is from before 2013.


Since the tweet went viral, other users have hopped on the thread asking dotNoso to make other predictions like, “Please say Kejriwal is going to lose the Delhi election,” and “Do Trump next.”
