"How dare you report that my father has died just to get press," AnnaKim Violette Petty writes on Instagram.
Rolling Stone was among many media outlets that had to backtrack on inaccurate reports of Tom Petty's death Monday afternoon -- but not before his daughter AnnaKim Violette Petty ripped them a new one and threatened to defecate down the publication's throat.
"My dad is not dead yet but your f-cking magazine is," AnnaKim Violette Petty raged on Instagram in a post showing her father's Rolling Stone cover from 1980. "Your slim has been pieces of tabloid dog shit."
Petty was rushed to the hospital Monday evening after suffering full cardiac arrest, as reported by TMZ. CBS News later said the singer's death had been confirmed by the Los Angeles Police Department, prompting Rolling Stone and numerous other publications to spread the supposed news; but the story had to be walked back when the LAPD announced on Twitter that they had no information about the rock legend's passing. Petty died in the hospital several hours later.
Petty's 35-year-old artist daughter was enraged at Rolling Stone, in particular, for the error. And it sounds like her rage has been building for years.
"You put the worst artists on your covers, do zero research," she wrote. "How dare you report that my father has died just to get press because your articles and photos are so dated."
"I will f-cking shit down your throat and your family's," she continued. "Try not being a Trump vibe. This is my father not a celebrity. An artist and human being. F-ck u"

The Instagram post is one of many AnnaKim has shared online since her father passed, most of them celebrating his legacy and sharing how much she loved him. She also changed her Instagram handle to "dadlivesmatteronelove" in his honor. "I feel grateful for having the greatest rock star as a dad," she wrote in one caption. "These shows healed people."
