Notre Dame Statement: Manti Te’o

On Dec. 26, Notre Dame coaches were informed by Manti Te’o and his parents that Manti had been the victim of what appears to be a hoax in which someone using the fictitious name Lennay Kekua apparently ingratiated herself with Manti and then conspired with others to lead him to believe she had tragically died of leukemia. The University immediately initiated an investigation to assist Manti and his family in discovering the motive for and nature of this hoax. While the proper authorities will continue to investigate this troubling matter, this appears to be, at a minimum, a sad and very cruel deception to entertain its perpetrators.

Re: Manti Teo: ruh roh

Wait so his excuse is he never met his girlfriend? Or that his dead girlfriend was not who she said she was and may still be alive?


I'm so confused.

Re: Manti Teo: ruh roh

Maybe they'll try to allege that there was actually a chick who met him and was in on the hoax and she just tried to get out in front of the story by going to Deadspin?

lolol

Re: Manti Teo: ruh roh

If Manti is the victim of a hoax, than he is also an opportunistic douchebag who leveraged a relationship with a girl who he has only contacted via text and social media through the Mainstream Media.

I'm torn, if he's gay it will be a boon of trollable material, however he will probably be able to spin it for sympathy (it's hard to be gay at a catholic school, I panicked, etc.)
