Satire Website Says Orange Is The New Black Is Canceled, Can You Guess What Happened Next?

Satire Is the New Fact



Empire News recently posted a story titled: “Netflix Pulls Plug On Orange Is The New Black; The Reason Why May Shock You.” Upsetting, right? Well, only if it’s true. Empire News is a satire website, but that didn’t stop the internet from taking their story as 100% fact. Thankfully Netflix and the Orange Is the New Black crew took to Twitter to straighten things out. Want some more good news? They’re already filming Season 3!
