Every now and then Twitter inexplicably takes down celebrities. On Monday, incarcerated New York rapper Remy Ma began trending worldwide after rumors circulated that she had been killed in prison. Monday night the former Fat Joe collaborator called into DJ Funkmaster Flex’s radio show on New York’s Hot 97 and put the vicious rumor to rest.

“I’m good. I heard I was dead and all type of craziness,” Remy told Flex over the phone.

When the DJ asked Rem what sparked the rumor, she said she had absolutely no clue. “I don’t know. People are crazy. They have nothing to do with their lives sometimes and they just say things and it gets out of control and other people say it and I don’t know,” she tried to explain. “I just know they were looking for me crazy all throughout the prison and I was happy I wasn’t out of pocket.”
