A graphic of a news story in circulation today claims that Vine sensation Lil Terio has been kidnapped.
The story is fake.
It was the second viral story at the end of 2013 by then-new website Huzlers. This is the same source responsible for rumors earlier that same week that internet star Sharkeisha had been shot. Let’s take a look at the fake article:
Georgia – BREAKING NEWS: Vine sensation “Lil Terrio” was kidnapped today from a local mall, Moments afterwards the family of young “Lil Terrio” received a phone call from men claiming to be from the Mexican cartel gang “Caballeros Templarios” they requested $250,000 in cash or else they quoted they would “oooh kill em” . Authorities are standing by as more news unfold.
The “article” above does not appear in any reputable news sources. It is also riddled with grammatical errors.
Lil Terio, sometimes called “Lil Cuzzin Terio,”(and sometimes spelled Terrio) is known for his Vine videos featuring his signature dance moves to the phrase “oooh kill ’em!”

Lil Terio was not kidnapped. The story is meant to be humorous.
