Manti Te’o, his parents and Norte Dame either trolled America or were all victims of a sick hoax. Deadspin revealed that the All-American’s girlfriend never existed. On came a press conference from Notre Dame and the Twitter reactions were swift and intense. 

 

This is a major understatement.

 

 

What does he mean by “met”?

 

 

If you really want to be a friend, have your girlfriend introduce Te’o to one of her friends.

 

 

Ouch.

 

 

That was just mean.

 

 

The hits keep on rolling.

 

 

I will watch!

 

 

Speak for yourself!

 

 

This will not end well.

 

 

Nobody else would touch him.

 

 

It ranks pretty high on the strange meter.

 

 

Story gets stranger.

 

 

It surely feels that way.

 

 

I’m pretty sure this isn’t true.

 

 

He’ll never live this down.
