Last week, we brought you news that a rumor had begun making the rounds that Sum 41‘s Deryck Whibley had died when the frontman was still very much alive. After some super-sleuthing, we tracked down the source of the rumor: One guy with time on his hands and an experiment to conduct. Andrew Bucket decided to post that Whibley had died on Twitter to see how fast the news could spread. While no harm was done in the end, it does bring up an interesting point: Should there be a law against spreading salacious rumors on Twitter? After all, as Bucket said in our interview with him, "You can’t fake your own death, but you can fake someone else’s death."
