A nasty rumor had Empire fans in a panic Monday!
The rumor? That the FOX hit was canceled!!!
Numerous Tumbler pages and websites claimed the show had been canceled even after earlier news reported the show being renewed for a second season.
Given the outstanding ratings the show has seen, and the popularity of the #beonempire contest -- which promised a walk-on role in the second season -- it is safe to say it was just a nasty rumor!
The rumor can be attributed to a NewsBuzzDaily.com – a satirical entertainment website. Their past stories include yarns about free donuts at Krispy Kreme - a woman's lips exploding after doing the Kylie Jenner Challenge - and Martin Lawrence having been found dead in a hotel.
