It's not clear how the rumors started but many on Twitter started passing a photo around of Deidrie Henry, the Popeye's commercial lady, saying "RIP Deidrie Henry."

Henry isn't dead. There are no valid news sources that have confirmed her death. It seems to be nothing more than a cruel joke.

However the rumor is spreading like wildfire. Many took to Twitter to discuss the death of the Popeyes lady. Some examples of tweets include
"The lady from the Popeyes commercial died :/ .."
"Damn.. The Popeyes Lady Died ! R.I.P"
"The Popeyes lady died smh I'm never eating that food again. I love my life too much"
"Did Diedrie Henry really die ... i loved her !!!"

Diedrie Henry isn't dead. She isn't just the Popeyes lady either. Besides starring in the commercial for the popular chicken restaurant chain, Henry is a TV actress. She has appeared in many TV series, with her role as Rowena in Justified on FX being the latest. She also appeared on CSI, Bones, Southland, Heartland, Without a Trace, ER and had an ongoing role as Aubrey McDonalds in The Riches. She also played Bonnie in a movie called Beautiful Boy. Henry also enjoys theater roles.

Henry has even won some awards for her roles. She won the Ovation award for Yelowman in 2006 and again in 2011 for Raisin in the sun.
