The Lennay Kekua, Manti Te’o Hoax

This is one of the weirdest, weirdest things I've ever read about. A nationally renowned college football player creating an imaginary girlfriend, then telling people about her tragic battle with leukemia? Then he kills her off?

But then the twist that perhaps somehow he was duped? That Kekua was created by some schlub named Ronaiah Tuiasosopo? That Tuiasosopo carried out a two year relationship with Te'o pretending to be a woman? What the fuck?

And it took the press years to realize it was all fake? This is just massively, massively odd. Read this great synopsis of the whole fiasco: Manti Te’o’s Dead Girlfriend, The Most Heartbreaking And Inspirational Story Of The College Football Season, Is A Hoax.

Very strange.
