According to the CDC, "The spread of Ebola between people occurs only by direct contact with the blood or body fluids of a person after symptoms have developed." Despite that, Cam'ron seems to think that you can catch Ebola by simply breathing the same air as an infected person. He's now selling completely useless "Ebola masks" with his likeness on them.

Killa Cam announced via an Instagram post (below) bearing the following caption: "Ebola is no joking matter.. So if u have to be safe.. Be fashionable. #CamEbolaMask get'm at @dipsetusa1997nx week, made by @chinagram"

The worst part is, he doesn't seem to be alone in his misguided beliefs. T.I. also seems to think a mask is a necessary step to preventing an Ebola infection.

Although the Center for Disease Control and Prevention may have never been responsible for an album as dope as Purple Haze, you should probably trust them on the subject of Ebola before you trust your favorite rapper.


[Update: Cam says he's sold 5,000 masks]

Cam'ron's ebola masks are one of the past month's weirdest news stories, and one that's apparently piqued the interest of many people. The other night, a paparazzo asked Cam how the masks were selling, and he responded, "Them shits sold 5,000." Watch a video of the clip, from TMZ, below, and wonder to yourself how he did it.
