The celebrity socialite fires back, 'Whoever made that stupid fake tweet lacks respect to the loss the world is mourning right now.'

Paris Hilton is fuming over a fake tweet that suggested she confused South African leader Nelson Mandela with American civil rights activist Martin Luther King Jr. A screenshot of the hoax message was posted by @DeletedTweets before it was slammed by the hotel heiress.

The fake tweet read, "RIP Nelson Mandela. Your 'I Have a Dream' speech was so inspiring. An amazing man," to which Hilton reacted, "Whoever made that stupid fake tweet lacks respect to the loss the world is mourning right now. Same goes for all the blogs who ran with it."

Before setting the record straight on the hoax, the socialite paid a genuine tribute to the late Mandela, "Just landed & heard the sad new about Nelson Mandela. He was a true Hero & the world is a better place because of him. May he rest in peace."

Hilton joins celebrities like Rihanna, Charlize Theron, Morgan Freeman, Idris Elba and many others who mourned Mandela's death. President Obama and Prince William also sent condolences in the wake of the inspirational figure's passing.

Mandela died on December 5 at the age of 95 after months of decreasing health.
