“Sherman Hemsley is moving on up… to heaven” is what I would have said if he died today. But he didn’t die today. He died three years ago.
The fact that the late actor, known for playing George Jefferson in the TV series The Jeffersons, passed away in July 2012 didn’t stop Facebook and Twitter from killing him one more time.
On Monday, a BET article announcing Hemsley’s death made the rounds on Facebook, breaking the hearts of fans first hearing the story.
