Were you fooled by the ‘Taylor Lautner is gay’ hoax? Many fans (and celebs) were!
If you’re wondering why Taylor Lautner was trending on Twitter yesterday, the answer is simple: Some people have way too much free time on their hands. A fake People magazine cover — and a terribly Photoshopped one at that — claimed to feature an exclusive interview with the Breaking Dawn star, in which he admitted to the world that he is gay. As you might expect, the fake cover made its way through the Twitterverse in no time.
“Tired of rumors, the Twilight star opens up about his decision to finally come out,” the cover reads, beneath a super-tacky “OUT & PROUD” headline.
The cover even included the following “quote” from Taylor: “I’m more liberated, and happier than I’ve ever been.”
Taylor previously addressed gay rumors in an interview with GQ Australia, simply stating: “I’m straight.”
Though it’s not yet known who created the original image, it’s pretty safe to say that he or she is a terrible human being.
