A police spokesman said around 9:30 p.m. that more information would be released via Twitter, but nothing had been posted by 11:30 p.m. CDT.

However, the Austin Chronicle reported that it had two staffers at the event. One staffer heard event workers discussing the concern as a bomb threat, according to a report the weekly posted online, and "a second Chronicle staffer spoke with someone working at Fair Market tonight, who confirmed that Austin police were canvassing the property to determine whether there is any validity to the threat."

The cancellation of the show on the final night of the South By Southwest Festival comes at a time of heightened concern in the city following three deadly package bombs – two on Monday – that have exploded in East Austin this month, killing two people and seriously injuring a third.

After working proactively with SXSW, the Austin Police Department, and other authorities, Bud Light believes this is the best course of action to ensure the safety of our guests, staff, and artists, and appreciate your understanding.

>> Read more trending news 

Here are some facts about the couple.

The Gaines opened their first business together in 2003

Magnolia Market came from a dream Joanna Gaines had. The business opened in 2003, but the couple later closed it to focus on their first two children, Drake and Ella Rose. During that time, they focused on their construction business, Magnolia Homes.

The first Magnolia Market, known as the Little Shop on Bosque, reopened in 2014. After outgrowing the space, the business moved to downtown Waco in October 2015 and became the Magnolia Silos location.

Chip and Joanna married in 2003

Chip and Joanna married in Waco, Texas, on March 31, 2003.

Chip surprised Joanna with a gathering of family and friends for their 12th anniversary in 2015. Some of the celebration aired during season three of “Fixer Upper.”

“The party itself was so intimate with just family and close friends in attendance,” Joanna told Style Me Pretty. “Chip stood up and read the sweetest speech and there was also live music played by a dear friend of ours. All the details and meaning behind this party really touched me, and when I think back to that sweet day Chip surprised me I feel so loved and honored to be his!"

They have a big family

The Gaineses are parents to four children and have one on the way. They have two boys, Drake and Duke, and two girls, Ella Rose and Emmie Kay. Joanna is pregnant with a baby boy who is due in July.

Chip and Joanna both went to Baylor University

Baylor University has been frequently featured in some capacity on “Fixer Upper.” Although Chip and Joanna Gaines both went to the school, they did not meet there. Chip graduated with a marketing and business administration degree in 1998. Joanna graduated with a communications degree in 2001.

They practice Christianity

Chip and Joanna are Christians and are outspoken about their faith. In 2016, they did an interview about their relationship with each other and their faith with I Am Second.

Chip has said Joanna allows him to be himself

“I feel like she knows me in a way that has caused me to stop acting,” Chip told I Am Second. “I feel like I’ve really been an actor -- I’ve been a character my whole life. I’ve always tried to prove something to someone. 

“When I caught her. I felt like I could be content. I felt like I could be exactly who I was.”

Joanna credits Chip with pushing her to start her own business, which became their home-renovation company

“If I didn’t have Chip Gaines in my life, I’d still be dreaming in my head but not acting out on any of that. Not living it out,” Joanna told I Am Second, adding that her husband pushed her out of her comfort zone.

Chip had multiple businesses before meeting his wife

Joanna met Chip in 2001, when she worked at her dad’s tire shop in Waco.

In an interview with “Today”, Joanna said her husband had a wash-and-fold business and a landscaping business, among others.

Joanna is multiracial, and shared her heritage with fans on her website.

“I love hearing all the guesses,” Joanna Gaines said on a Q&A on the Magnolia website. “Although I did play Pocahontas in high school, I am not Native American. My father is half Lebanese/half German and my mother is full Korean.”

The Gaines’ businesses go beyond houses and home decor

In addition to their Target line of home decor, their renovation business and Magnolia Silos, the Gaines are opening a restaurant in Waco. Magnolia Table is opening at the location of Elite Cafe, a historical restaurant in Waco that closed in 2016.

Rihanna slams Snapchat for ad asking users to slap her or ‘punch Chris Brown’

Weeks after receiving backlash for its new design, Snapchat is under fire again. This time, users are upset about an ad that seemingly promotes domestic violence.

An ad for a game called “Would You Rather” popped up on the social media platform last week. It asked, “Would you rather slap Rihanna or punch Chris Brown?” It included a subtitle that read “Impossible Choices.”

In 2009, Brown pleaded guilty to felony assault and making criminal threats after assaulting Rihanna his then-girlfriend, during Grammy weekend. Many thought the prompt directly referenced the incident and encouraged domestic violence.

Following the backlash, Snapchat issued a statement Tuesday, saying the ad was published “in error,” according the to BBC.

“The advert was reviewed and approved in error, as it violates our advertising guidelines. We immediately removed the ad last weekend, once we became aware. We are sorry that this happened,” it said.

Despite the apology, Rihanna took to social media Thursday morning to denounce the brand. “I’m just trying to figure out what the point was with mess,” she posted on her Instagram story Thursday. “All the women, children and men that have been victims of DV in the past and especially the ones who haven’t made it out let us down! Shame on you. Throw the whole app-oligy away.”

The Verge reported that Snapchat responded to Rihanna’s post in a statement Thursday.

“This advertisement is disgusting and never should have appeared on our service,” the company said. “We are so sorry we made the terrible mistake of allowing it through our review process. We are investigating how that happened so that we can make sure it never happens again.”

Dateline reported that the ad was approved in error and violates Snap’s advertising guidelines. The company said it has blocked Would You Rather as an advertiser.

Some fans have considered deleting the app after Rihanna’s post.

According to The Wall Street Journal, about $800 million of Snap’s market value was lost after Rihanna’s post. The price of shares in the app’s parent company went down 4.5 percent according to Bloomberg

Snap’s latest decline comes after shares rebounded from Kylie Jenner’s February tweet about no longer opening Snapchat. After the tweet, $1.3 billion in market value was wiped out as shares of Snap declined 6.1 percent.

‘American Idol’ contestant says Katy Perry kiss wasn’t harassment

“American Idol” contestant Benjamin Glaze was unexpectedly kissed by judge Katy Perry during his audition.

On Sunday night’s episode, the 19-year-old confessed that he had never been kissed.

“Have you kissed a girl and liked it?” Luke Bryan asked, referencing Perry’s popular song, “I Kissed A Girl”.

“I’ve never been in a relationship,” he said. “I can’t kiss a girl without being in a relationship.”

Perry decided to swoop in and give him a good luck kiss. “Come here, Benjamin. Come here right now!” she said.

Glaze walked to the judge’s panel and went in for a kiss on the cheek that just wasn’t up to Perry’s standards. When Glaze went in for another kiss, the “Roar” singer turned her head and planted one on his lips.

After composing himself, Glaze began his audition singing Nick Jonas’s hit “Levels.” Unfortunately, he didn’t get sent Hollywood to continue in the competition.

Bryan suggested he “hone his craft a little more” and “get better at singing” before trying again soon.

Fellow judge Lionel Richie also said he had high hopes for Glaze’s career, even though it was a no from him.

“I really enjoyed meeting you today,” Perry said. “You gave my heart a flutter. I think you’re really sweet, but truthfully, there are just some people that are outsinging you right now, and so I don’t think it’d be fair to put you in that kind of competition. Next time just take your time. I think you were a bit rushed, and I think that’s because I sped up your BPM of the heartbeat.”

Glaze spoke about the media coverage of the kiss on his Instagram page. Contrary to reports, Glaze said he wasn’t uncomfortable with the kiss, but the fact that he wasn’t expecting the kiss and hadn’t been kissed before was what caused discomfort.

“The way certain articles are worded is not done by me, and my true intentions are not accurately represented in every article you read about the situation,” Glaze said on Instagram. “I am not complaining about the kiss, I am very honored and thankful to have been apart of American Idol. The main purpose for the show is to find stars and new music artist. I do wish I would have performed better in the moment. I should have picked another song to sing and calmed myself down regardless of the kiss.”

“I do not think I was sexually harassed by Katy Perry and I am thankful for the judges comments and critiques. I was uncomfortable in a sense of how I have never been kissed before and was not expecting it.”

Glaze emphasized that he wants to reach people through music and not cause tension among anyone. 

“American Idol” airs Sundays at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
