Twitter Thinks Lorde Is Going To Prison — And The Memes Are Hilarious

Stan Twitter seems to miss Lorde deeply as the pocket of the social media realm started a rumor that the pop superstar was going to prison.

At its backbone, the rumor (and accompanying hashtag #FreeLorde), which took to Twitter on Monday (October 7), was prompted by New Zealand's newly-proposed policy, which will reportedly fine the parents of students who drop out of high school and do not complete their academics. In case you don't remember, the chart-topper left school in 2013 to focus on her music career and released her debut, Pure Heroine, a year later. With that said, the School Leaver Tax Policy has yet to be implemented and the worst that could happen is that her parents will be fined $3,000. Nonetheless, Twitter was extra with their response and produced several memes in reaction to the news.
