A viral article published by a fake news website alleged that a woman used a pack of Jimmy Dean sausage to pleasure herself inside a Walmart bathroom. The story spread like wildfire around the Internet. But it isn't true.
The fake story was traced to Now8news, a known "clickbait" website that publishes fake stories.
The website uses mugshots of random inmates culled from the Internet.
The website claimed that a woman was caught inside a Walmart bathroom pleasuring herself with a package of Jimmy Dean sausage.
A male security officer supposedly entered the bathroom stall and saw the woman performing an obscene sex act with the sausage.
The website claimed: "Johnson was inappropriately pleasing herself with a Jimmy Dean package of sausage. He said that when he entered "She didn't even stop. She just stared at me and kept going."
According to Snopes.com:
Now8News is a fake news site camouflaged as a local television news outlet and publishes nothing but fictitious clickbait articles. Now8News has previously posted made-up stories about a woman being arrested for "trying on" tampons, an obese woman starving her children, and a man being arrested for having sex with a pig.
