Rumors of Clooney Joining System of a Down Greatly Exaggerated

Rumors of actor George Clooney joining System of A Down on the group’s upcoming “Wake Up The Souls” tour are greatly exaggerated.

The band’s frontman, Serj Tankian told Asbarez “We have no information or knowledge about Clooney.”

The rumors were prompted by an unattributed—and unsubstantiated–item posted by the Yerevan-based Hraparak Jamanak, which reported the news as fact. This news was also picked up by other Armenia-based media outlets and was circulated on social media.

A subsequent—and obviously humorous—post by Tankian on his personal Instagram account was deemed by various media outlets in Armenia as confirmation.

There's a rumor that #georgeclooney will be coming to Armenia with us next April. This is undeniable truth :)
