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 !!!"
