[Spoiler alert: Do not read on if you have not seen the third season premiere of Fox’s “Empire.”]
Fox’s hip-hop soap “Empire” killed off a major character in its Season 3 premiere on Wednesday, and Twitter responded the only way it knows how: with a bunch of wiseacre memes.
The victim was Rhonda Lyon (Kaitlin Doubleday), wife to record-label scion Andre. It wasn’t a total surprise: In the show’s over-the-top storylines, Rhonda has been something of a punching bag for the villainous Anika (pictured, above) — a.k.a. “Boo Boo Kitty” — who last season pushed her down a staircase, killing Rhonda’s unborn child.
On this week’s premiere, Rhonda and Anika scuffled on a balcony, which resulted in Rhonda plummeting onto a car many floors below.
This development shocked many fans, who nevertheless were able to gather themselves enough to create silly memes commemorating the occasion.
Just witness a sampling:
