Fail Occurred: 9/27/2001

In 2001, after coming back from a video shoot, Erick Sermon fell from a third-story window. While he had originally told authorities that his injuries were caused by a car accident, police began investigating it as a suicide attempt as a result of jumping out of a woman's apartment in New Jersey. Gay rumors spread soon after. The fail isn't that there were gay rumors about Erick Sermon (they are gay rumors about nearly every popular rapper) but that he couldn't explain a simple accident which only made the story more and more bizarre. Erick Sermon denied everything, and continues to deny everything. Related: Since the fall, consumers have denied everything he's put out.
