A fake video pretending to show Bobbi Kristina Brown's funeral has gone viral, causing much outrage among fans who were led to believe that Whitney Houston's daughter was dead.

The 16-second clip was uploaded on Saturday by someone with the username Blacknews. The heart-breaking clip, which shows an open casket, has been captioned "Bobbi Kristina Brown Funeral Service 7/30/2015," and so far has received more than 24,000 views.

As the "funeral" video surfaced shortly after a hearse was spotted in the hospice care facility, a good number of fans believed the 22-year-old has died.

Bobbi Kristina remains at Peachtree Christian Hospice in Atlanta as she continues to fight for her life following the 31 January tragedy, which resulted in her lying unresponsive in the bathtub of her home that she shared with boyfriend Nick Gordon.

Friends and family have been visiting Bobbi Kristina daily, and many believe it won't be long before she says goodbye to the world.

A few days ago, actor Tyler Perry requested the public to show "some decency and respect" and avoid spreading lies about Bobbi Kristina's health. In a Facebook post on Friday, Perry spoke about the late Whitney Houston and requested fans to avoid celebrating darkness.

"This morning I woke up with Whitney on my mind," Perry wrote. "I couldn't help but think about all that she must have dreamed for her child. I know this was not her dream… And as difficult as this time is for the people that love both Whitney and Krissi, what makes it more egregious is the blatant disrespect, lies, and ignorance that are rapidly printed in this awful time. For some reason, it has become human nature in our society to look for, seek out, and celebrate darkness, glory in tragedy, and enjoy reading and reporting it."
