UPDATE, 6:35pm EST: Buzzfeed to the rescue, claiming the tweet is FAKE.
UPDATE II, 6:48pm EST: Paris has spoken! Or, erm, tweeted!
Whoever made that stupid fake tweet lacks respect to the loss the world is mourning right now. Same goes for all the blogs who ran with it.

SORRY BB! SHOULDA NEVA DOUBTED YA!
Socialite, pop singer, and aspiring DJ Paris Hilton has set Twitter on fire this evening with an alleged tweet that gives recently departed Nelson Mandela credit for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have A Dream” speech.
We say allegedly, because either Hilton quickly deleted it, or it’s fake. We’re praying it’s the latter.
But of course, who the fuck knows. Get Snopes on the phone. Or DeletedTweets.
Though, you know, Charlamagne Tha God makes a good point…
I'm more in shock that Paris Hilton Is aware of the "I Have A Dream" speech…
