Thursday 18:10 GMT

The students from Covington Catholic High School were cleared of any wrongdoing after an independent investigation funded by the diocese found they were not the instigators of the viral incident with a Native American man at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., last month.

The Rev. Roger Foys, the bishop of Covington, told parents in a letter obtained by Fox News that their students had been exonerated for the misrepresentation of their actions on January 18..

Chuck E. Cheese's forced to deny rumors of splicing together leftover pizzas following viral 'conspiracy' video

Thursday 13:36 GMT

Chuck E. Cheese’s has been forced to deny that the chain repurposes old, uneaten pizza slices to form “fresh” pizzas after a YouTuber circulated the theory in a video published earlier this week. “The claims made in this video about Chuck E. Cheese’s and our pizza are unequivocally false,” a representative for Chuck E. Cheese said of the theory, which YouTuber Shane Dawson floated on Monday.

In his partially tongue-in-cheek investigative video, Dawson – who boasts more than 20 million subscribers on YouTube – explored online rumors that employees of Chuck E. Cheese would allegedly collect uneaten pizza slices from the dining area, and once inside the kitchen, fit those pieces back together and re-serve them as part of a new pizza.
