On October 2nd, 2013, an anonymous user of 4chan's /b/ (Random) board[7] laid out a plan for an online prank to convince fans of Miley Cyrus that she had contracted AIDS (shown below). The post cited the singer's recent breakup with actor Liam Hemsworth and her overtly sexual stage performances as reasons why the prank would be believable. It also encouraged people to use the hashtag #CureForMiley[2] on Twitter to draw attention to the campaign. The post was subsequently archived via Pastebin.[1]

It can be used to explain her irrational sexuali ty on stage and in her music videos, she doesnt have much time to live, she wants to get the most out of life, and feels she is doing so through her dancing.

Pregnancy Rumor

The campaign came off the heels of a pregnancy rumor that had been circulating the web on September 30th, suggesting Cyrus was expecting a child with rapper Juicy J. In less than 24 hours, "Miley Cyrus Pregnant" had been mentioned more than 75,000 times on Twitter. Cyrus quickly dismissed the rumor by joking about it on Twitter that day.

Notable Developments

Later that morning, a Facebook fan page titled cureformiley[4] launched, gaining more than 300 likes within six hours. A screenshot of a fake CNN article (shown below) about Miley having HIV was posted to the r/4chan subreddit[3] where it gained more than 2,500 upvotes, 1,300 points overall and nearly 175 comments, many of which admonished the poster for drawing attention to the unfounded nature of the hashtag.

On Facebook and Twitter, users continued to circulate photoshopped images from TMZ and Twitter claiming to be proof of Cyrus’ status, while on YouTube, the hashtag #CureForMiley began appearing in the top comments of her music videos. Around the same time, the hoax was explained on rumor-dismissing site Waffles at Noon[6] and internet culture blogs BuzzFeed[5] and The Inquisitr.[8] As of 2 p.m. (ET), #CureForMiley has been used on Twitter nearly 500 times[9] while “Miley HIV”[10] and “Miley AIDS”[11] have been mentioned more than 460 times combined.
