Were you fooled by the guy who claimed he was blocked on Facebook because of his name, "Phuc Dat Bich"?
I mean, come on. How could you fall for that one?
The guy admitted his prank in a Facebook post last night.
He said his hoax taught him not to trust the news media who gets most of their stories from social media nowadays.
He wrote: "It goes to show that an average joe like myself can con the the biggest news sources with ease."
What started as a joke between friends, became a prank that made a fool out of the media and brought out the best in the people who reached out to me. It didn’t bring out the anger and darkness that we often see on the internet, but it brought a levity and humanity in a time we need it most.
Out of this ordeal I’ve concluded not to trust the credibility of the media, it’s twisted by the hungry journalists who mask the truth.
I just want those who are reading this to take a step back and reflect what the media have claimed about me.
“What was his parents thinking?”
It goes to show that an average joe like myself can con the the biggest news sources with ease.
