How did a fake video of Billie Eilish farting on Instagram livestream go viral? Well it all started when one of Billie's fans made a video which looks exactly like a Billie Eilish livestream. The screen is pitch black and you can hear the sound of someone snoring. Comments pop up on the screen with fans saying "she's asleep." Seconds later though, a fart sound plays and people write: "DID SHE JUST FART?" LMFAO.

The fan then posted the video online as though it was a real Billie Eilish livestream and it quickly made its way to Twitter and beyond. Noticing what had happened, Billie took to Instagram to write: "HAHAHAHAHAHhHHHa maaaaN whoever faked that livestream that shit is funny lmfao... i didnt even have my phone last night and my farts dont be sounding like that lmfaooooooooooo im dead".

Better yet, Billie also posted a video reacting to the prank. She says: "Y'all got me back. It's okay. I deserve it but imma get you back real quick, don't you worry about it. You really think my farts are weak like that. *imitates fart noise* That ain't me. Mine sound like a fucking bomb."

We have no choice but to stan.
