Viewers who tuned into last night's season 3 premiere of 'Empire' were distraught to see Rhonda Lyon lost her much-hyped fight to Anika Calhoun.
'Empire' fans were even more disappointed that Rhonda didn't even receive a proper burial so they could grieve her passing.
Hundreds of viewers took to social media to question why openly gay director Lee Daniels dismissed Rhonda's death as if it never happened.
"I'm mad they really going on with life like Rhonda didn't just die," wrote Twitter user @ShawnMina.
FOX responded to the growing chorus of complaints by putting together this moving tribute to Rhonda that will bring tears to your eyes.
