Unsuspecting netizens thought the nine-year-old rapper was taken into government custody on May 4, a day before published a story titled, “Viral Sensation ‘Lil Tay’ Has Been Picked Up by Los Angeles Child Protection Services.”
The article stated:
“Lil Tay was picked up by child protective services Friday afternoon when service agents visited Lil Tay and her families home in Beverly Hills. Agents decided to pick up Lil Tay after one of her Instagram videos was shown in the child service office. It’s reported that multiple agents immediately sprung into action and raced to Lil Tay’s home, even using emergency vehicle sirens.

But if you didn’t know already, Huzlers is a “fauxtire” website, combining “faux” and “satire.” This means it only publishes fake news for entertainment purposes.
Nonetheless, the article spread like wildfire, as many have been wishing to hear from Lil Tay’s parents/management, wondering how could they let the nine-year-old girl regurgitate expletives in her videos. If it counts as discipline, they recently put her under “house arrest.”
If anything, Lil Tay’s latest Instagram video dispels all fake news — she just got a new Jaguar, y’all.
