Calm down Gladiators. It was only a hoax.

Earlier this week, satire website Cream BMP Daily, posted a faux story about the Golden Globe nominated actress Kerry Washington being replaced by actress Meagan Good, who’s often portrayed as the “hot chick” in most urban films, on Scandal.

Cream BMP Daily posted on its Twitter Monday along with the above picture:

To help legitimize their story, the website even posted supposed quotes from the shows creator Shonda Rhimes, causing fans to believe their prank.  They stated that;

It reads, ““Where Meagan lacks in acting she makes up in sex-appeal so we believe she’ll bring a larger male demographic to an already female driven show” Said the director of Scandal about the news that Kerry would be leaving due to her refusing to agree to a decreased salary.”

The website also states that Rhimes said, “Let’s be honest $300,000 per episode is not like we were putting her in the poor house”.

This sounds very personal and unprofessional.  It’s hard to believe this news for true.  Scandal is one of ABC’s major shows.  You can’t even log on to Facebook or Twitter Thursday nights between 9 and 10pm without a stream of #Scandal statuses.  Even if you don’t watch the show or are unable to tune in due to work, you will, unwillingly be updated via social media on what’s occurring as the show airs.

As bogus as this news sounds, it still angered fans.

Besides the social buzz, Scandal is up for its fourth season premiering in September with its new time 9pm/8c.  Since the start of the show Scandal has been nominated for 15 Awards and has won 7 including a Primetime Emmy Award.

In the Creambmp.com, Meet Cream BMP section posted at the bottom of the site, it states, “Follow CreamBmp on Fbook, & Twitter or read more about satire and comedy here.”

As it turns out Cream BMP is just a young comedian trying to put his stamp on the world.  Well done.  Now we know not to trust anything from your site.  Why bother even reading because if he is a so-called comedian, there were absolutely no LOL (laugh out loud) moments in that article.

So Gladiators can exhale now.  There will be no Meagan Good on Scandal.  Well at least not season 4.
