Lil Tay is not dead, She Claims Her Instagram was Hacked
Lil Tay, the social media personality known for being the “World’s Youngest Flexer,” has addressed recent rumors of her death, clarifying that she and her brother are safe and alive. In a statement provided to DripMedia, Lil Tay’s family explained that her Instagram account was compromised by a third party, leading to the spread of false information about her and her brother’s supposed deaths.
Lil Tay expressed her heartbreak over the situation and stated that the past 24 hours had been traumatizing. She confirmed that her legal name is Tay Tian, not “Claire Hope” as the misinformation claimed. She thanked Meta for helping her regain control of her Instagram account and removing the false death announcement.
While the situation has been clarified, it remains unclear why it took Lil Tay 24 hours to address the misinformation and confirm her safety, especially since she was aware that her account had been hacked and was receiving calls about her supposed death.
Lil Tay gained fame for her extravagant lifestyle and rap videos, earning millions of followers on Instagram. She had not posted on her account since 2018. The recent incident highlights the impact of misinformation and the need for individuals to verify information from reliable sources before spreading or believing in it.
