A fake report about the future of Hooters circulated on the internet on Wednesday.

The report, which was published by a viral Twitter account, stated that Hooters would be closing down, because of how millennials feel about women's breasts.


The report, which went crazy viral on social media, is actually not true.

"this is the fakest news that has ever newsed," Hootie, the Hooters mascot, tweeted.

The sports world had taken to social media to weigh in on the fake report.

"There goes my backup plan," prominent sports media personality Paige Spiranac tweeted.

"The “hooters blame millennials for a rebrand” aggregate story is the culture war’s Monterey World Cup stadium view. Works every time for the last 5 years," Mike Ryan of the Dan Le Batard Show tweeted.

"if they shut down hooters i will organize an event twice the size of Jan. 6th," another fan tweeted.
