Co-Host of BET’s 106 and Park, Rocsi Diaz was trending on twitter yesterday due to a joke that went viral about her being caught stealing from Wet Seal in Miami. The “article” stated that Rocsi had shoved four pairs of heels into her Aeropostale bag and put on seven sets of panties under her denim romper. When the assistant manager, Brooke Valentine noticed Rocsi did not put the clothing back on the rack. She immediately called Miami International Mall security and Rocsi was apprehended on scene.
The “gotcha gotcha” was the article had a photo created in Photoshop. Rocsi released a statement today and from the sounds of it, she just may sue. The funniest part about this story is, Brooke Valentine being the assistant manager. This is a great example of when twitter goes wrong. Check out Rocsi’s statement
“It is unfortunate that all the attention on me is negative because of a joke that went too far. I find no humor in calling me a thief and what people fail to realize is that when wanting to do business with major companies things like this hurt my image which I try to be a good example to young people. I’m no thief. The writer of this malicious story and anyone who writes false stories about anyone should be held accountable for their slanderous lies.”
