A completely unsubstantiated rumor about an alleged sex tape of the celebrated soul singer, songwriter and actress Jill Scott went viral on Tuesday night and seemed to break the entire internet -- or, at least, the portion where Black users log online.

FEMA, the federal agency coordinating the government's response to Hurricane Ida, has denied the "rumor" that it is providing hotels for displaced survivors in Louisiana and is instead encouraging them to apply for "possible" help online.
