British Youtube star Marina Joyce is at the centre of a viral storm today over claims ISIS had kidnapped her as part of a plan to lure teens into a terror attack.
Joyce sparked wild abduction rumours after appearing in a video in which she appeared to beg viewers to “save me”.
The Metropolitan Police became so concerned about the claims that they sent officers to Joyce’s London address to see if she was alive and well.
But Joyce finally stepped in to quell fears this morning and tweeted: “I’m TOTALLY fine guys. I am feeling very good today and its actually so heartwarming to see so many people care about me.”
The web celeb’s fans have spent the past two days and nights in a frenzied attempt to uncover clues to back up their kidnap theories.
Their fears were ignited after Joyce posted a video called “Date Outfit Ideas” in which she cavorted about her garden dressed in a selection of baby doll dresses.
Joyce’s dazed expression prompted false suggestions that ISIS extremists had drugged her, whilst other online would-be detectives claimed to have seen bruises on her body.
Fans also zoomed in on her eyes and claimed they could see the reflection of a hooded cameraman.
Cops became involved after she invited her 171,000 Twitter followers to an early morning rave led by hippies whose “vision is a happier, healthier and more glittery world”, calling on them to rendezvous at Bethnal Green at 6.30 am on August 3.
But in a document viewed more than 500,000 times, one rumour mill-grinder wrote: “Do NOT go. There have been reports of shootings in the location.”
Alfie Deyes, who is part of a Youtube power couple with the famous video blogger Zoella, even joined in the hysteria.
“Please please do not attend @MarinaJoyce7’s meet up tomorrow morning,” he wrote.
“I’d hate for anyone to be in danger.”
It is understood concerned followers phoned the police, prompting officers to visit her home in Enfield.
The force then tweeted that she was OK using the same “#SaveMarinaJoyce” hashtag fans were using to publicise their search for answers.
