Former Manager Accuses Lil Tay of Orchestrating Fake Death Announcement Amid Hacking Claims
Lil Tay, the 14-year-old internet sensation, has found herself at the center of controversy once again. Her former manager, Harry Tsang, has raised doubts about her recent claims of a hacked Instagram account and a subsequent fake death statement. Just hours after confirming her continued existence, Lil Tay faced accusations from Tsang, who managed her during her peak fame in 2018.
Earlier this month, a shocking statement appeared on Lil Tay’s verified social media account, asserting that she and her older brother, Jason Tian, had passed away. However, more than 24 hours later, Lil Tay emerged to dismiss the death rumors and attribute them to a third-party hack. She assured her followers that she and her brother were safe and well.
Tsang, in a written statement to DailyMail.com, challenged the veracity of Lil Tay’s explanation. He questioned the swift restoration of her compromised Instagram account, suggesting that such processes usually don’t take a full day. He also pointed to Lil Tay’s brother’s history of resorting to extreme measures for attention.
Tsang emphasized the potential irresponsibility of such actions, highlighting the impact on public perceptions. He expressed concern over potential motives and repercussions behind the incident, hinting at the possibility of attempting to regain Lil Tay’s faded prominence.
The circumstances surrounding Lil Tay’s situation have sparked public debate and speculation. Some argue that the delay in addressing the death rumors raises questions, while others consider the entire ordeal a potential publicity stunt.
As the controversy continues to unfold, the story of Lil Tay’s alleged hacking and the subsequent denial of death remains a subject of intrigue and skepticism across social media platforms.
