Wow, I didn’t see this twist coming; apparently Manti Te’o was duped by a man who was impersonating a woman on the telephone.  I feel like I need to take a shower.

Alrighty then.  This whole Manti Te’o internet hoax has taken a dramatic turn.  A man named Ronaiah Tuiasosopo not only masterminded this hoax, he was actually the feminine voice on the other end of the telephone with Manti.  Yeah, this dirtbag acted like a woman with leukemia and conducted many phone conversations with Te’o.

This is a sad story for many reasons.  It’s sad that Tuiasosopo pulled a cruel hoax on Te’o.  To trick someone into believing that they had a girlfriend who was dying of leukemia is beyond inhumane.  It’s even sadder that people keep ripping Te’o instead of this maniac Tuiasosopo.  What a brutal story.
