Earlier this week Lil Wayne was treated and released from a hospital in Los Angeles after suffering from seizures, and on Friday night new reports surfaced that the YMCMB rapper was in critical condition after suffering from a relapse. TMZ reported that Wayne was taken to the hospital after being found unconscious, and they sent fans into a panic by adding that he was in a critical condition with friends and family gathered by his bed to say goodbye. Shortly afterwards Birdman and Mack Maine tweeted that Wayne was doing just fine, and eventually he took to Twitter himself to tell fans that he was all good. Still, he had the Internet on edge.
Not only did Wayne immediately become a trending topic, but so did TMZ as fans lashed out at them for false reporting.
