You may have seen a widely-shared screenshot of an apparent exchange between Palone Malone and the pizza chain on Twitter but it turns out that chart-topping rapper isn’t really having a hilarious cheese war with Domino’s after all.
The Domino’s Twitter account had supposedly made a pizza-themed parody of lyrics to Malone’s chart-topping hit, “Rockstar,” to which he responded, “Never fucking do that again.”
As awesome as it would have been for the pizza giant to get utterly owned after trying to cash in on the party anthem, it’s all a clever hoax.
According to Buzzfeed, “the most common version of the fake screenshot is watermarked with “IG: will_ent” and appears to have spread from that Instagram profile to others.”
The screenshot has gone viral across social media. The account @MeninistTweet, which has 1.68 million followers, tweeted it and received 72,000 retweets and 250,000 likes.
Fuckjerry, an Instagram account account with nearly 13 million followers, posted it and received more than 200,000 likes in an hour.
The Facebook page Trending Memes — 242,000 followers — also posted the photo, and people shared it more than 25,000 times and liked it 11,000 times. It’s received more than 5,000 upvotes on Reddit.

The real Malone set the record straight in a response to Meninist’s tweet, saying that he, in fact, loves actually loves Domino’s. I thought was exclusive to Popeyes’ biscuits.
