The Knoxville Carjacking Party
Status: HoaxAccording to internet rumor, Britney Spears is planning to star in a movie titled The Knoxville Carjacking Party, based on the brutal 2007 murder of Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom. Spears would play Channon Christian.
The story is a hoax. More specifically, it's a case of satire mistaken as news, having apparently originated as a faux news report from "celebrity snitch, Clarence Star" on the site Ghetto Bragging Rights.
Wayne Bledsoe, a columnist for Knoxnews.com, notes that the spread of the false rumor offers a case study in how misinformation is propagated by the online media. Numerous celebrity gossip sites, such as popcrunch.com, reported the false rumor as fact, without making any effort to verify it. Bledsoe writes:

They say Brit couldn't handle the pressure but the movie's underway.Posted by sign of the time in Tennesse on Thu Aug 07, 2008 at 08:38 AM
To even joke about making a movie like this is outrageous!! Five blacks raped, tortured, dismember, and murder a young White couple out on a date. The fucking idiot that came up with the 'Knoxville Carjacking Party' movie hoax should have the hell beaten out of them!! You know, this double-murder wasn't even covered by CNN, FOX, or MSNBC? But they had a field day over the fake Duke rape case. This anti-White racism that goes unnoticed had better fucking STOP, before we Whites say ENOUGH! No more Mr. Nice Guy and start taking matters into our own hands!!Posted by Michael in USA on Sun Jan 18, 2009 at 12:29 PM
Thank you Michael! Finally someone agrees with me. This case needs to be recognized nationwide. I'm so sick of jesse jackson playing the race card! This was a very brutal crime...this isn't something that happens everyday here in Knoxville. If 5 white people did the same things to a young black couple...it would be EVERYWHERE. I hope each one of these guys gets raped and beaten every day that they are imprisoned.Posted by ashley in knoxville tn on Sat Jun 27, 2009 at 02:38 AM
