Benoit Wiki Hoax Exposed

6/29/2007 9:08 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Chris BenoitThe REAL story behind the Chris Benoit/Wikipedia mystery has been exposed – after the "news" broke about the chilling message that someone posted on the wrestler's Wiki page about his wife being dead - supposedly hours before the bodies were found.

Just as TMZ expected, it was just another case of Wiki-vandalism!

As Wikinews.org has reported on their own site, they know the responsible Wiki Wacko and, although he wants to remain anonymous, he did submit a written statement to Wiki, claiming:

"Last weekend, I had heard about Chris Benoit no showing Vengeance because of a family emergency, and I had heard rumors about why that was. I was reading rumors and speculation about this matter online, and one of them included that his wife may have passed away, and I did the wrong thing by posting it on Wikipedia to spite [sic] there being no evidence."

Isaiah – I'm No "Mush-Mouth Negro"!


Angry much, Isaiah? Former "Grey's Anatomy" star Isaiah Washington talked to Newsweek recently, and he rips the show for firing him because, in part, he's a black man "with a booming voice." Actually, let's let him explain: "It didn't help me on the set that I was a black man who wasn't a mush-mouth Negro walking around with his head in his hands all the time."

Oh, and it doesn't stop there. Isaiah says an HR person told him that "some people" were "afraid" of him around the studio, to which he replied, "Why, because I'm a 6-foot-1 black man with dark skin and who doesn't go around saying 'Yessah, massa' and 'No sir, massa' to everyone?"

Nicole Richie Getting Hitched?


Nicole Richie -- already rumored to be pregnant with Joel Madden's baby -- could be preparing to go down the aisle with him as well. 24Sizzler.com is told that ol' Wrong-Way is "shopping around for a wedding dress ... asking stylists for help," and seems to think that the wedding could go down just about anytime, like July. (And she doesn't have a dress yet? Nicole Richie?)


Party Favors: Obama Has Jay-Z and Beyonce on the iPod ... Kristy Swanson Says She's Not a Homewrecker ... Wacko Jacko Is Not Bedridden


Presidential hopeful Barack Obama has impressive taste in music -- he told the Angie Martinez Show on Hot 97, say Rush & Molloy, that he's got Jay-Z and "a little bit of Beyonce" on his playlist. ... Kristy Swanson tells People magazine that she's not "a homewrecker," even though she took up with dancing partner Lloyd Eisler when Eisler's wife was eight months pregnant. ... And Michael Jackson's manager felt obliged to dispel rumors floating around about the King of Pop, including that he's bedridden and paranoid about his family stealing from him. Thanks.

If I were a network, I'd stay miles away from this Washington nutcase. He's a racist and a lawsuit waiting to happen.

Here we go again!! Why is it that EVERY time a black man or woman gets themselves in trouble they always scream RACISM!!?? The world is TIRED of hearing it Mr. Washington!! Before blaming anyone else, take a look in the mirror...the words came out of YOUR mouth! Counselling, rehab, whatever you want to call it, America is SICK of the name calling! Grow up, be thankful for what you have in life and move on. Playing the race card only digs your hole deeper!!

Somebody , shoot it! Quick!

Nicole-trainwreck trying to have a baby to stay out of prison.
isiah washington spelled with lower case letters because he is lower case. THe CREATOR of GREY's just happens to be a Person who is a dynamic, gifted, super talented Black lady. washingtonis full of b.s. most people would love a chance to bankroll themselvesin a hit tv show. I hope his career FOLPS and he moves into where are they now file. I am so tired of some Blacks using the race ard tohave their way -Vivica Fox, OJ, Al Shapton, Jessa Jackson, isiah washington, etc. This is not what Dr.Martin Luther King Jr. died for and so many other people duringthe 60's who had the dogs sicked on them, hang on tress, and were hosed by the law.

I wish many of you others, would please take the time to recognize Black people at work, in your neighborhoods,wetc . and judge them on their own merit and notthese poeple. You would be surprised. We are are normal and many things in common, and are not like these people.

Everyone is afraid of Issaih's TEMPER and MOUTH.! Having a BIG mouth can be detrimental to your career Mr Washington. It has nothing to do with being BLACK. You are making excuses. Look into the BIG PICURE, your PERSONALITY. Your too out-spoken, hurt people's feelings, are in a rage all the time and you are a very negative person who thinks you are above others. (Hit the nail on the head huh?)
Negativity BREEDS NEGATIVITY.

*sigh* I sent y'all this link last night.

http://en.wikinews.org/wiki/Chris_Benoit_mystery_editor_confesses:_Claims_%22terrible_coincidence%22

The kid who edited the Benoit Wikipedia article confessed. Wikinews has the full story. And please don't cite Fox News as having reported on this first -- they got the initial story from Wikinews.

How precisely could Chris Benoit posted that Wikipedia entry when the IP address came from Stamford, CT and he was clearly in GA? Based on Fox news interview with the founder of Wikipedia, that would be impossible, genius.

Isaiah----your horrendous behavior is what got you fired, and your words show they did the right thing---beyond the fact that you are an arrogant, angry bigot--you aren't a very bankable actor and people don't like you. You race has nothing to do with it---you just aren't a nice person, and you think you are all that!!!

There is no possible way he could have posted it. he was dead. some radio statios are saying he could have accessed the WWE server, maybe - but the time line is wrong for that. he was already dead.
maybe Vince had him whacked. - DRAMA

Homewreckers never think they're homewreckers. They just think they're "special" and it "just happened" and everyone ELSE who's ever done this is a homewrecker.

Considering the man had a wife who was 8 months pregnant, whether they were "separated" or not (separated probably only means they weren't getting along), a decent woman gives a husband and wife the opportunity to work out problems or eventually divorce by staying out of the marriage as a third party who has a motive.

A ho plows right on ahead with her plans. A married man plows right on ahead with his "Kristy was there for me" story. And neither the man nor his mistress have any clue of the pain that they cause others. They just choose not to be accountable because, after all, if they're happy, everybody's happy.

Kristy Swanson? You're a homewrecker. And Lloyd Eisler? You're not a man. You're trash.

Okay, what if Chris admitted to someone at some organization that he had killed his wife? What if someone at that organization was then concerned that there'd be a 'roid rage concern? What if they then arranged for Bibles to be placed near the bodies so that they'd be able to say, "See? No 'roid rage."

I've been watching too much Matlock.

Isaiah has little talent.....a lot of attitude.....and a big black chip on his shoulder! I am so sick of blacks pulling out the race card every time they screw up!!!! He is a biggot and a sexist.....so if his firing was race driven, maybe it was just due cause!
