US site apologizes for fake news about Queen’s death

Hollywood Unlocked has apologized for posting fake news about Queen Elizabeth’s death. The site, which reported Tuesday night based on sources that the Queen had died, called it an “embarrassing situation” on social media on Wednesday caused by the intern.

Hollywood Unlocked wrote that the 95-year-old queen’s lifeless body was found Tuesday before she went to Vogue editor-in-chief Edward Enninful’s wedding. British royal reporters were quick to refute the ‘news reports’. “I hate to tell you this but that’s not how a king’s death is announced,” tweeted royal expert Marlene Koenig. He added that Elizabeth would also never attend the editor-in-chief’s wedding. “He just went to a family wedding.”

The website said on Wednesday that messages about Elizabeth’s death had inadvertently surfaced online. “We are working hard to prevent such mistakes from happening again. The intern was misinformed and accidentally published a draft message.”

While the news about the Queen was inaccurate, she didn’t feel quite fit right now. Elizabeth has been infected with the coronavirus and canceled several digital appointments on Tuesday due to a “mild flu complaint”.
