Some Donald Trump supporters are angry with Pepsi over something that never even happened.  Some are even threatening to boycott the soft drink maker.

The outrage comes from fake statements circulating on social media.

Twitter users -- many citing debunked news articles -- claim the company's CEO told Trump fans to "take their business elsewhere."

But Pepsi CEO Indra Nooyi never told Trump's supporters Pepsi doesn't want their business, and she even congratulated the president-elect on his victory.

According to Snopes, the only statement she said that was anywhere remotely close to what some are claiming was that many of her employees were upset by Trump's election.
