Nguyen told BuzzFeed News that she “found out through an Instagram post that people thought she had died at the concert.”
“I was honestly very confused and was wondering how people found my pictures,” she said. Nguyen said she isn’t sure where the information came from.
A tweet claimed she was “the first to be announced dead” after the festival, and included “a photo of her and a misspelling of her name.”
“I am not a Travis Scott fan, before and after the incident,” Amelyn added. Her viral video cleared up the assumption and has 1 million likes so far.
“That made me feel so much better about the whole false death accusations, I told my close mutuals and we all had a good laugh.”
