    The backstreet boys plane had just crashed 16 minutes ago. The plane was engulfed in flames before it hit the ground..

    I heard on the radio..and I believe this is true..I'll call them and see what I can find out.

    Was it a major station that you heard this on? If it was they would not risk covering the story unless they knew it was true.

    I know what you mean. Like, It's news so I am interested, but not because they crashed just because it is news.

    Yeah..

    I really DO think it's true..they could probably get sued over this and a lot of young people listen to this station.

    I am not a Backstreet Boys Fan and I just switched to MTV, then ABC, then CBS. If it was true, then wouldn't they interrupt "Who wants to be a Millionaire?"

    Maybe its just a rumor started by someone.

    Haven't heard anything here in Australia. It would be a tragedy if it is true even though I'm not a Backstreet fan.

    It's not true..

    This young girl called them on the radio and they started speaking a foreign language so she didn't understand.

    What a sick joke.

    That's twisted. If it were true, every major news station would be interrupted with the story, since BB are such a major group with an extremely loyal fan following! Some people are just morbid when it comes to worthless rumors like that. They did that when "New Kids on the Block" were the main teen fan rage, back in the late 80's.

    And the "Paul is Dead" rumors about the Beatles in the '60's.

    That's just completely tasteless. I'm all for pranks and practical jokes, providing they're not in *extremely* poor taste. I don't like the Backstreet Boys, but I'd hate to think of my nieces hearing that rumor, or one of the Boys' mothers...

    What's worse: 137 'common' people who die in a plane crash or those 'famous' Back Street Suck... er, Boys?

    I don't see any difference, except that in the latter case, more people will be feeling sad (their fans) and unlike the first case, groups of people will even feel happy about the crash (BSB haters).

    Making jokes about things like this is in this case more appropriate than with 'common' people, but still it's not something which should be done for everyone famous.
