The day started with Aretha Franklin as a top trending topic and this time not for feuding with Patti Labelle and those stupid pies of hers. Aretha was reportedly in the hospital dying of cancer with friends, family and stars showing up to say their final goodbyes. A rep for the star, Shaun Robinson tweeted “Good Morning, Everyone. I just spoke to one of Ms. Franklin’s family friends in my hometown Detroit. They spoke to Aretha moments ago and asked me to tell you please don’t believe this news that was trending. Have a good day.”

As for the cancer rumors, she’s been battling those for at least 6 years. They last came up in 2011 when she said she picked up the paper and saw she had pancreatic cancer after losing a lot of weight as a side effect to medication. Then a fake Aretha Twitter account pronounced her dead today receiving 15,000+ responses.

Roland Martin took a break from lying saying he had a conversation with her and confirmed she was still alive, although his word is about as reliable as Bill Clinton not having relations with “that woman.” See Roland Martin Helping Hillary Cheat During 2016 Election Town Hall

Now that we have settled the false Aretha health scare, can we put some Respect on her name and stop trying to kill her off, please?
