Is Miley Cyrus dead? That's what everyone in the Facebook world was wondering when a rumor started swirling online that the twerker was in fact dead.

"{SHOCKING) Miley Cyrus Found Dead in Her Los Angeles Home! Country singer Miley Cyrus found overdosed this afternoon in her Los Angeles home," the messages read. It wasn't an official newsflash or anything, it was all a viral Facebook scam.

The scammers behind the hoax tried to convince people to click on their link by saying Miley died in her Los Angeles home due to a drug overdose. The hoax is designed to spread bogus surveys that make money for the scammers behind it.

Apparently when users click on the post, they're redirected to a website designed to look like Facebook. It then prompts them to share the page before going further. This ensures that the scam spreads even further.

Unfortunately, a lot of Smilers weren't aware that the whole thing was fake, and really thought Miley was gone. She's reportedly aware of the whole death hoax, and supposedly thinks it's kind of entertaining. Read about that here.

This isn't the first time Miley's name has been used as a part of an online hoax. There have been tons of supposed naked pictures and sex tapes of her online for years. There have even been other Miley death hoaxes before, too. Did you fall for this one?
