The Onion's Shawn Johnson is dead video circulating on the web
The Onion, famous for their fake news, has made a video claiming that Shawn Johnson, the Olympic gymnast and Dancing with the Stars champion, is dead and had to be put to sleep after breaking her leg; the video is now starting to circulate on the web.
The Onion -- harbinger of fake news and a staple in the messenger bags of hipsters everywhere -- has released a video on its Web site that's causing quite an internet stir.
Shawn Johnson has not commented, but one of her former gym mates had this to say:
"It's sort of rude; it's just over the top," said Pilcher, who competed in gymnastics with Johnson for five years.
However, Shawn Johnson is not dead, just to clear that up.
