Rihanna

SWATTED

Rihanna
is the latest celeb to get swatted ... and TMZ has learned it's happening right now.

Law enforcement sources tell us ... a call came in to 911 claiming 2 armed men were inside the Pacific Palisades house and someone was shot.

LAPD is on scene and we're told they're confident it's yet another swatting call.

The incident comes just a day after Diddy was swatted in the nearby San Fernando Valley.

As we reported ... the latest swatting victims appear to have been targeted by the celebrity hackers who pilfered financial information from Michelle Obama, Kim Kardashian, Tom Cruise, Britney Spears, Beyonce and others.

Hey, TMZ.
.
COPYCATS!! Remember those?
.
Honestly, you reported non-stop about the celebrity hackers. You then report that the FBI is investigating and then the host site shut them down. Then you report they are back up and running. NOW, you are reporting that since the 12 yr old was caught, and is being charged with a felony that the Hackers are now copping to the latest swatting and look what happens. Psychos out there figure if this "GROUP" can't be caught by even the FBI that they can have some fun.
.
Now every kid, teenybopper, teenager, young adult and adult that's looking for attention will now pull these stunts thinking the cops won't go looking for them, they'll focus on the celeb hackers. This is why I hate when TMZ reports on sick a-holes that walk into theaters or schools and shoot it up and report on it. You have no idea what sick minds are reading TMZ and will attempt what they all have done.
.
I really think you guys might want to think about drawing a line in the sand, hmmm?

Wow, how much more obvious can it get, that the purpose of these STORIES( and they are just that), are programming the public to accept more intrusion and to set up an excuse for complete govt control of the internet. Keep up the good work playing into the agenda!

I agree with MAJESTIK and PHREAKY. This is no joke and someone could easily get hurt or killed. TMZ is giving them exactly what they want - free publicity. Please stop TMZ - this is getting scary.

Sux for the taxpayers of the city. However, I wonder if this is an inside job because they don't have enough to do? I've always been a conspiracy enthusiast.
