Michelle Obama appeared on Jeopardy last night as gave pre-recorded clues for a category titled "Healthy Cooking With Michelle Obama," which focused on ways to improve eating habits by adding or removing ingredients from your diet. During her cameo, the First Lady stood in an industrial kitchen with vegetables behind her as she spoke to the contestants and the audience. The Internet and several news outlets went crazy with questions about why she suddenly looked bald and grey, somehow missing the fact that there is a light source above her and that ponytails are a thing.

The story became much bigger than it needed to be, and people seemed legitimately concerned and confused on Twitter. There were very few logical tweets about why she would cut her hair or go grey overnight, just lots of hysteria and some angry responses from people wondering why any of it matters.

So far the White House has not issued a statement about Michelle Obama's health or her hair, probably because there are real issues like plane crashes and terrorism to deal with.
