On June 19th, the website ThingsUThink[7] published a satirical article about rapper Boosie Badass, which quoted a nonexistent interview in which Boosie claimed Davis was actually a clone:

"I rock with Gucci the long way but that ain’t the real Gucci, we both sitting in the studio and he seemed lost and after his show at Mansion he called me Herman […] You know they can do that crazy clone Sh*t these days, you look at Gucci and tell me that’s Gucci and ill pay yo child support and yo baby momma rent."

The following day, Twitter users began tweeting that the recently released Davis was actually a clone created by the United States government (shown below).
