A viral post claimed Alexa Demie was leaving Euphoria… and tricked a bunch of fans into voting for Doja Cat at the VMAs.

Everyone calm the eff down – Alexa Demie is not leaving Euphoria.

Unfortunately, a bunch of the show’s fans clowned themselves after a Twitter post claiming Alexa Demie had been dropped from the upcoming season of Euphoria due to ‘behind the scenes issues.’

In defence of that fake post, the account went to great lengths to make it seem legit – although, which new tweet linked to the thread, the claims did get more and more absurd. One, for example, claimed that Demie had left due to ‘drama’ between the cast members which made it difficult to shoot.

Others in the thread claimed that Demie would be replaced by Kali Uchis, and that following her departure, Hunter Schaffer and Zendaya would also be saying goodbye.

Turns out, however, that the ‘article link’ led to nowhere except a page which thanked fans for voting for Doja Cat at the MTV VMAs. So, yeah, did quite literally a bamboozle.

As of now, the original fake tweet is still up and has 15.8k quote tweets (and counting) and 640 retweets.

It’s possible that Euphoria fans were left on edge after news of Barbie Ferreira’s abrupt departure from the show broke.

On Thursday, August 24th, Ferreira shocked fans by announcing she was saying goodbye to the show, after being one of its main cast members for years. “After four years of getting to embody the most special and enigmatic character Kat, I’m having to say a very teary-eyed goodbye.” she wrote on Instagram Stories.

“I hope many of you could see yourself in her like I did and that she brought you joy to see her journey into the character she is today. I put all my care and love into her and I hope you guys could feel it. Love you Katherine Hernandez.” she continued.
