# Why changing page footer content draws a line to the top of the page

I wanted to change my footer content so it would be a text I chose instead of the page number. But making this change draws a line to the top of the page. How to get rid of it?

Here is the code:

\documentclass{article}  % The style class

\pagestyle{fancy}        % set the pagestyle to fancy to include headers and footers
\fancyhf{}               % clear the header and footer
\fancyfoot[C]{This document is written in \LaTeX. $\odot$ Last update \today}

\begin{document}
bla
\end{document}


Here is the screenshot of the output:

\renewcommand{\headrulewidth}{0pt}
