A One Direction fan reportedly killed her pet Chihuahua in a fit of rage because the British boy band did not respond to requests to follow her on Twitter. Some are saying the fan, Twitter handle @illumivato, is just a serial hoaxer and this is not real. I HOPE this isn't real.

She sent out the tweet "Follow me or I'll break my dog's neck". After she didn't get a response or follow back from One Direction, she tweeted a picture of her holding her supposedly dead dog at one of the band members saying "'I love you. Follow me. My dog has just died."

The case has been widely reported by the Spanish and South American media, but the woman's name and location have not been revealed.

This isn't the first time she's done this though, which is why some people are saying she's a serial hoaxer. You can see below what she's tweeted before. Threats of blending her kitten, and even threatening to kill her mother if she doesn't get a "Follow Back".
