It’s a screenshot from the official Twitter account of SpongeBob so it must be legit, right?!

People are expressing how much they’ll miss the show — with a lot of crying emojis, GIFS, and sad comments flooding the internet.

Some are shookt as hell and are in total panic. Remember that scene where all the SpongeBobs are in chaos inside SpongeBob’s brain? Yeah, just like that!

Others are even ready to fight someone!

But before you even go to your crying corner and start reminiscing how SpongeBob played a huge part on your childhood, here’s a little fact check for those of you who still don’t know the wonders and horrors of this thing called ~*pHoToShOp*~!

You see, it’ll only take you seconds to believe things like these online, leave a comment triggered by your emotions, and share it with your friends until it becomes viral. But just the same, it will only take you a few seconds to verify things and confirm that it is “fake news” — a content that’s only meant to misinform people.

So dry your tears because, yup, that thing is FAKE! The tweet never existed and was just edited.

In fact, they do this EVERY. DAMN. YEAR.

The official Facebook page of SpongeBob SquarePants dismissed the rumors that the show is being cancelled on March 1. SpongeBob was in fact renewed for its 12th season this 2019.

❗️Breaking News ❗️March 1st is nothing but the first day of March. SpongeBob is NOT being cancelled. Season 12 is coming your way in 2019🍍#SpongeBobForever

Nickelodeon also released a statement about the issue and said that SpongeBob will celebrate its 20th anniversary next year, and that it even has its own broadway show!

It’s 2018, and we still need to remind ourselves that we shouldn’t believe everything we see on the internet? Seriously, those who still make up fake things just to go viral online, y’all are *dolphin noises*!
