Is Eric playing a trick on us? The ‘Modern Family’ star alarmed his fans when he tweeted a link to a report about the cancellation of the ABC comedy with the comment ‘so sad.’ See his tweet!
After six very successful seasons on ABC, Modern Family may be coming to an end! It sounds absurd, but star Eric Stonestreet has worried his fans after he tweeted a link to a report, claiming the show is on its way to the television graveyard.
‘Modern Family’ Canceled — Eric Stonestreet Tweets He’s ‘So Sad’
The headline to the story on Clickhole.com reads, “Whoa: ABC Just Canceled Modern Family In Order To Teach People That Something You Love Can Be Taken From You With No Warning Whatsoever.”
Obviously, fans were beyond devastated to hear of the “cancellation.” And Eric’s tweet (seen below) didn’t help either.

But, fret not. Modern Family is not canceled! Eric was just joking.
Clickhole is a site run by the people who run The Onion, which features satire articles, according to E! Online.
Unfortunately, this isn’t the first time TV fans believed one of their most beloved shows was canceled.
‘Orange Is The New Black’ Canceled?
Empire News posted a fictitious article in July, claiming the super popular Netflix series, Orange Is The New Black, was canceled. The site even included quotes attributed to Netflix executives in the article.
Fortunately, neither news story is true. Both show are still alive and kickin’!
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Would you be upset if Modern Family got canceled?
