‘Oh no!’ Dionne Warwick, 80, tweets cheeky response to fake news YouTube video claiming she had died

Singing legend Dionne Warwick, 80, tweeted a cheeky response this week to a YouTube title implying she was dead.

A social media user caught her eye by posting a screen grab of a YouTube video entitled: ‘The Life And Sad Ending Of Dionne Warwick.’

The Twitter user quipped: ‘according to youtube @dionnewarwick is dead,’ prompting Dionne to quote the tweet and joke: ‘Oh no!’

Although the title of the YouTube video refers to her ‘sad ending’ the body of the video itself does not say that she is dead.

Dionne, who became a star in the 1960s after being discovered by Burt Bacharach, frequently delights her fans with her candor on Twitter.

Her niece Brittani Warrick, who is a professional social media consultant, had persuaded her to join the platform. 

Dionne tweeted last year that Chance The Rapper’s moniker was redundant as ‘If you are very obviously a rapper why did you put it in your stage name?’

She also made fun of The Weeknd, real name Abel Tesfaye, writing: ‘The Weeknd is next. Why? It’s not even spelled correctly?’

Chance and The Weeknd were both delighted to be ribbed by such an iconic musical artist and wrote as much on Twitter.

The Weeknd gushed that he felt ‘honored’ and Dionne ‘just made my day,’ while Chance spilled that he was ‘freaking out that u know who I am.’

Wendy Williams then theorized on her show that ‘I totally believe that she is doing her own tweeting but I think that Brittani is her right hand, like after Aunt Dionne does what she wants, after midnight, maybe after some bud.’

Then Wendy irreverently recounted the story of Dionne’s arrest for marijuana possession in 2002 when joints were found in her baggage at an airport.

‘A friend alerted me that Wendy Williams was spending a lot of not nice time speaking on me,’ Dionne wrote on Twitter in response. 

‘I tuned in to her show to catch the last few minutes of her speaking about me and as in the past she seems not to be able to speak without maliciously made comments.’

Dionne added: ‘My hope is my name will refrain from being spoken or thought of by her as this conversation was held a few years ago letting her know there was nor would be any need for her to say the name Dionne Warwick for any reason. I don’t believe one has to be mean to get noticed.’

Goofing around: Dionne tweeted last year that Chance The Rapper's moniker was redundant as 'If you are very obviously a rapper why did you put it in your stage name?'
