A disclaimer at the bottom of every page on the site Huzelrs.com reads:
Huzlers.com is the most notorious urban satirical entertainment website with the most shocking headlines and articles.
Likewise, a disclaimer on the “about us” page of The Adobo Chronicles reads:
THE ADOBO CHRONICLES is your source of up-to-date, unbelievable news. Everything you read on this site is based on fact, except for the lies … Why the title, “The Adobo Chronicles,” you might ask? Well, adobo is the national dish of our home country. You see, adobo is usually made with pork or chicken, boiled and simmered in a mixture of vinegar, soy sauce and other spices. When writing stories for this blog, we let the news sizzle and simmer in our mind in a mixture of fact and fiction, then we spice it up with figments of our imagination.
Yet two articles from the aforementioned publications are spreading around Facebook and Twitter. Each has tens of thousands of Facebook likes/shares.
Kanye West And Kim K Banned From Attending Future Grammy Awards
Kanye West Barred from All Future Award Shows
Both articles basically suggest that due to Kanye’s latest outburst at the Grammys, wherein he walked up onstage when Beck beat Beyonce for Album of the Year and subsequently lashed out at the organization’s lack of respect for musical creativity, he’s been banned from attending future ceremonies.
This is not true.
Please consider the source before sharing. You’re not your grandmother and this isn’t an email about Barack Obama’s Kenyan army. Or maybe you are and maybe this is. Please exercise social media caution.
