Manti Te'o

Mocked Online

'Te'oing!'

Well, that didn't take long ...

Following in the tradition of Tebowing, owling and planking ... the Internet has given birth to a new trend -- Te'oing ... inspired by the Manti Te'o not-really-dead-girlfriend scandal.

Here's what you do ... put your arm around your invisible girlfriend ... and take a photo.

It's hilarious ... and it's already blowing up.

FYI -- Notre Dame says Manti Te'o will address the media over the scandal later today ... so, stay tuned.

WOW, how everyone is quick to judge him...how do you not know that maybe he was embarrassed to admit he had an online girlfriend, even with his father saying they met his father could of been lying to spare his son embarrassment. BULLYISM IS ALIVE AND WELL. :-(
NICE WAY FOR THE MSM TO DISTRACT OBAMA'S RECENT BLATANT UNCONSTITUTIONAL GUN BAN BY THROWING THIS NON STORY AT US.

I do feel bad for him. His emotions seem authentic. I sincerely hope nothing comes out saying he played a part of this whole scandal, and knew what was happening. You just never know these days.

I hope that boy got good grades while he's in school because he's going to need that degree. No way is an NFL team going to pick him up after this.

If your "girlfriend" is some fishy-sounding girl you met on the internet, and have never met in person, don't tell everybody that she's your girlfriend. For all you know she could end up being some 50-year old male trucker, assuming she exists at all.

Until we know whether or not he was involved in or knew anything about this "fake" girlfriend, I wish people would refrain from making fun of the situation. This could leave someone very emotionally vulnerable - why are people always so quick to make fun of others' myseries????

This sounds like an insane 'Catfish' episode. Wonder if producers have contacted him already.

I pray it all works out for him.

An example of what social media has evolved to with fake accounts. Failbook --- Zuckerberg should be proud.
