"This proves how much the press did not give a fuck about facts," she said.
"They cared about slandering my name. They did not do any fact-checking."
She also accused her father, Chris Hope, of being behind the death hoax.
"Chris Hope was the one that did the death hoax… He was trying to sabotage me," she claimed.
She also uploaded snippets of her new music video, Sucker 4 Green, on Instagram.

Her half-brother, Jason Tian, executively produces the music video.
Talking about the music video, she said in the live, "This video and song are only glimpses into the world I've been building. What and who I am are in the title of the song. Get with it or GTFO [Get the fuck out]."
In August, Lil Tay was the target of a death hoax.
On 9 August, it was announced through a statement on Lil Tay's Instagram that she and her half-brother had died.
After the statement was deleted, Lil Tay released a statement to TMZ saying:
"I want to make it clear that my brother and I are safe and alive, but I'm completely heartbroken and struggling to even find the right words to say. It's been a very traumatising 24 hours. All day yesterday, I was bombarded with endless heartbreaking and tearful phone calls from loved ones, all while trying to sort out this mess."
She added that her Instagram account "was compromised by a 3rd party and used to spread jarring misinformation and rumours regarding me, to the point that even my name was wrong".
She stated that her legal name is Tay Tian, not Claire Hope.
Lil Tay became a famous internet personality in April 2018 for her YouTube and Instagram uploads.
