A picture may be worth a thousand words -- but oftentimes they're the wrong ones, and man do we hate it when that happens.

The photo above began circulating after the 2013 Grammy awards along with a story that alleged Adele gave Chris Brown a stern talking to for not standing when his rival Frank Ocean beat him out for an award.

But alas, the British chanteuse says that story is false. Which gave us a serious case of the sads.

At least that's how we imagine things went.

And with that, our favorite story of the week has been ruined. Way to rip our still-beating hearts out of our chests and stomp on them with your niceties, Adele.
