Re: Deadspin: Manti Te’o’s Dead Girlfriend is a hoax
"My bet is that deadspin just outed a gay guy to his Mormon family. Nice going, guys!"
"That was my initial thought too. He was dating a guy who pretends to be a girl online, and when people want to starting meeting "her" he freaks out and makes up a story about her dying without thinking how people will react. That's the only explanation I can come up with that doesn't involve Te'o being a terrible, terrible person."
