Lead Stories' Trendolizer first detected this hoax story as trending weeks ago, but we ignored it because we figured it was too stupid for anyone to buy. That did not happen. This fake report is still getting shared, retweeted and read at a viral rate. But it is still not true.
The report says that "Numerous consumers have blamed the once popular vodka's new flavor Ciroc Apple as the reason for them being fired for cocaine use. Over 300 incidents reported so far."
It quotes a fictional Mr. Jarrof Cumsling (great fake name) as saying he is an innocent victim of the tainted vodka. "On weekend I was turning up at the club and by Monday morning I was fired and being arrested on the job fr cocaine abuse," Cumsling said.
"Jarrod plans to file a class action suit and wants all the real Ninjas of America that drink Ciroc to link up with him so y'all ca get this money," the story said.
Our advice: Whenever one of your "friends" share this on Facebook, respond with our story. Also, do not call a lawyer about suing Diddy.
