Tell the Internet it can calm down, because that report in the Express about online sensation Grumpy Cat pulling in $100 million? Let’s just file that under “wildly inaccurate.” Proud owner of Grumpy Cat, Tabatha Bundesen, tells the paper, “I was able to quit my job as a waitress within days of her first appearance on social media, and the phone simply hasn’t stopped ringing since,” which is either hyperbole or a terrifying way to live. But Bundesen tells the Huffington Post that while Grumpy Cat has pulled in plenty of cash thanks to appearances, endorsements and a new Lifetime Christmas movie, the Express is way off with its $100 million claim. But Lil Bub? That guy’s totally a billionaire.
