Paris Hilton has become a fact-checker in a TikTok video that attempts to set the record straight on a years-old viral photograph of herself apparently wearing a shirt with the slogan “Stop being poor.”
“I’ve never worn this shirt,” the socialite-turned-DJ said in the video shared online Monday. “It was completely photoshopped, everyone thinks it’s real but it’s not the truth.”
She said the shirt actually read, “Stop being desperate.”
“Don’t believe everything you read,” added the heiress, who announced her engagement to boyfriend Carter Reum in February as she celebrated her 40th birthday.
According to the KnowYourMeme website, the photo was edited by a Tumblr user in 2013 and then went viral.
