A little before noon Wednesday, a Twitter account with fewer than 50 followers caught a viral wave and sent Cowboys fans into a panic. Amari Cooper, the team's star free-agent wide receiver, had been, according to @TOffseason, shot "in a parking garage in the Dallas area."
The tweet was bullshit. @TOffseason no longer exists. The Dallas Police Department says Cooper wasn't shot in Dallas. Dez Bryant says Cooper is texting him and is fine, and Cooper himself hopped on Instagram to stop the rumor mill.
