The answer is crap talk, It’s fake and aimed for your clicks.

Sites like this are pure clickbait sites.

Clickbait is online content that is aimed at generating online advertising revenue, especially at the expense of quality or accuracy, relying on sensationalist headlines or eye-catching thumbnail pictures to attract click-throughs and to encourage forwarding of the material all over social media.

So, before you share something, make sure its real.
