Jim Parsons quitting Big Bang Theory - Internet/Facebook Rumour

24 Jul 2014 - Article No: 1865. Filed under: General | Internet/Facebook Rumour

Rumours are circulating that actor Jim Parsons, who plays Dr. Sheldon Cooper, has quit The Big Bang Theory after an on-screen fight with co-star Johnny Galecki, who plays Dr. Leonard Hofstadter.

However the rumours do not appear to be true and seem to have started on a site called Empire News, which is a website that continually posts fake news stories under the guise of satire Ė though most would agree the stories donít appear to be particularly humorous or satirical in nature.

According to reputable news outlets, Jim Parsons and the rest of The Big Bang Theory cast are currently under the process of establishing new contracts before they begin shooting for the upcoming eighth season of the show.

Empire News, along with a handful of similar websites, has been responsible for many rumours that have spread across social media recently. The site posts false stories to attract traffic to the site where the site owner makes money through sponsored advertising.

We generally recommend avoiding such websites that post fake nonsense and pretend it is satirical. We have an article about these types of sites here where you can see some tips on how to avoid them.
