Notorious fake news website trueamericans posted an article with the title "BREAKING: Will Smith leave America with family, and never come back." (mistakes left intact intentionally). That is also the body of the entire hoax article...
Now this is a story all about how
Some fake news got flipped-turned upside down
And I'd like to take a minute

I'll tell you how I debunked this rumor about the Prince of Bel-Air
- Trueamericans is not a real news website. Almost all of their headlines contain spelling errors and the site is riddled with advertising popups.
- There is no source anywhere in the article.
- No other website is reporting on the 'news'. Sites like TMZ.com would be all over an announcement like this.
Check out the graph below that we made using Trendolizer to see how fast this rumor is spreading.
While we wait for other fact checking websites like Snopes to also debunk this rumor, you can help:
