This Facebook Page Celebrates Tupac's Role In The 1916 Rising

"We finally have it! The picture proof that it was Tupac that read the Proclamation of the Irish Republic outside the GPO in 1916, and not Padraig Pearse!"

Over the years, Tupac has been the subject of numerous outlandish conspiracy theories.

Superfans believed the rapper, who was supposedly shot dead in 1996, actually faked his own death (for some reason) and left coded messages of this in his songs. In fact, some even thought he recently posed for a photograph with Rihanna.

Subscribers to these theories are way off, however, as the Facebook page To Live & Die in the GPO - Tupac and the Easter Rising goes to great lengths to prove that the West Coast rapper had in fact been a leading figure in the Irish rebellion. 

Take a look at the evidence presented below.
