Oh God, does this post remind anyone of that guy who lied claiming that his fiancée died in the Twin Towers... and would be 23 today if she had lived?
And then, when the astute mathletes in his circle of friends noted that she would have been like 7 years old when they got engaged, he backtracked by claiming that a team of scientists performed an age progression of the photo...
....a lie that didn't even solve the problem since it still wouldn't explain why he was engaged to a child!
This post reminded me of that. This guy even did the whole hysterical indignant "how DARE you disrespect my grief??" bullshit that the dead fiancée guy did. Who would have known that two separate people would try essentially the same despicable trick to get sympathy on Facebook?
Ha I can just picture this girl's parents actually having a photo of a young Katy Perry in their living room and they've made up this entire backstory about it to their younger daughter, who was all of two or three when 9/11 happened and can't remember a lick of those events.
"Mom, who's that in the picture?"
"Well, uh...uh...Mike? Little help here?"
"Sure. It's your big sis Kat--hy. Yes. Kathy."
I immediately thought of that post too. It's fucked up that so many people see nothing wrong with using a horrible tragedy to get attention online. If they're gonna make up a sob story, they should at least make it something that didn't happen at all rather than taking an event that people actually died in and making it about themselves. Not to say that it would be fine if they just said their sister had been struck by a meteor and died or something, but it adds another layer of horribleness when they do this shit. My 18 year old husband who died on 9/11 would be disgusted by this.
Lying for karma is pretty petty too IMO.
One time I saw some guy tell a story about waiting on line in a grocery store with Keanu Reeves. In the story, he realized he didn't have his wallet, and said that Keanu just pulled out $200 cash and casually handed it to him. It got like 14k upvotes.
Everyone bought into it, but I knew it was bullshit. There's no way he would be walking around with $200 in his pocket. I mean, back when I shared an apartment with Keanu, he would never carry cash on him.
Do these people not actually have any family or close friends on their Facebook that see this kind of BS?
Hey, I died in the Bowling Green massacre, I got so many prayer likes. Nothing can takes that away from me.
Moral of the story: When you make up a dead relative to gain sympathy, always use a C-list celebrity.
What is wrong with people?!
I mean, lying for karma is one thing, but for facebook likes?! Sheesh!
Maybe next time don't use a famous celebrity's phonfefe
Did yellow have a stroke while she was typing "photo"?
I've seen it before. Mostly it's parents who are too much of a push over and don't want to hurt their child's feelings.
Was there. I saw your death. Rip.
"Sorry guys, my account was hacked".
"Where is she, can I meet her?" "Well, no, um...she's dead" "OMG when? I'm so sad I'm gonna post this on FB"
Guys can you stop talking about someone else other than me? I'm starting to feel like I'm losing attention, and I don't like it.
They're well-meaning at least. To them, it looks like a person who is calling out for support, and they're offering it.
But not a porn star.
Here is the post he is referring to, for anyone curious.
I'm guessing they either deleted the post and will refuse to ever acknowledge this happened, or just doubled down. These kinds of people never admit to their lies.
*looks around room"
Damn you for making me enjoy that so much
"My dead sister posted that."
Was she raised by Phoebe's parents?
Or they use the excuse of "Oh I don't know all this internet stuff" as if lying about a fake sister that died in 9/11 is ever an okay thing to do, even if it's on the internet.
Best I can offer is a potato.
"What we need is more Christians, but fact-checking Christians!"
What are you talking about? Of course he can see them from four miles away. He has great eyesight, the best eyesight. Everyone knows it.
(/s, just in case)
Her reaction wasn't what I'd expect from someone who legitimately believe her sister died. Way too in the middle, not too emotionally invested in mad or sad. She doesn't want to conceed but knows she can't double down too hard.
Or Trump who lied about being able to see people jump off the Twin Towers from the Trump Tower four miles away (if he was even there, which is also disputed).
My dad died in the Great Famine over there in Ireland. Someone give me gold.
Edit: You're all heartless bastards.
Ouch. You've got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em. Know when to walk away, and know when to run.
Also reminds me of "comedian" Steve Rannazzisi who lied about being a banker in one of the towers during 9/11. He got called out and the company he claimed to have worked for denied he ever worked with them. He went on Jeff Ross's roast battle and did some cringe comedy.
"16 years ago today, we lost our dear sister Getty..."
Do people not know about reverse image search?
People on a certain watchlist I'm sure.
It's sad that some people are so pathetic that they even kill innocent children of just -2 years old
What annoys me just as much are the people who immediately jump to validate their bullshit by saying stuff like "I'm so sorry for you loss. Have my thoughts and prayers."
Yes, yes he did.
And also lied about donating $10k to a 9/11 related charity in the days after the tragedy.
You really can't tell at all from what she said.
No, leave the watermark. It adds more credibility to your claims.
The internet, too complicated for me. Black text on a white background? Nope, we didn't have that in my day. I can only read hieroglyphics on papyrus.
on 9/11 he also
he also said he "helped, a little bit" to clean up the rubble on "7/11" and was in danger of debris falling on him which is widely disputed - especially since the clean up started after the buildings had already collapsed....
That's nothing. I lost my child to 9/11. She'd be 13 and starting middle school today
Didn't he also say he saw muslims dancing in jersey celebrating that night or some shit?
But she remembers playing ps1 and eating pizza with her haha
They're qualified to be President!
I think a porn star might work unless they have an iPhone to date wiki. Whose gonna be like no I know that girl your claiming was your sister who died in a tragedy I jerked off to her blowing a dude.
Did she say anything afterwards? Dammit. They always end too soon!
"Done by scientist's" hahaha
Thanks for the link!
I can be your dead cousin if you like?
You take an image, either from your computer or from a website link, then drag it with your mouse to images.google.com search box.
But is no potato
Is only hallucinate from malnourish
Such is life
Teanna Trump passes, Donald and family mourn their loss.
If we go bowling
If using chrome you can simply right click an image and select to search with google images.
I think it happens quite a bit. I saw, in passing, an old acquaintance of mine make a post to her dead older brother. "Awwww, that sucks." is what I thought when I scrolled by. Then I realized I knew her as a child, and she never had an older brother. Only two younger ones. Don't mean he died before I met them either, they were solid family friends back in the day so I checked with my mom. Nope.
I saw Keanu Reeves at a grocery store in Los Angeles yesterday. I told him how cool it was to meet him in person, but I didn’t want to be a douche and bother him and ask him for photos or anything.
He said, “Oh, like you’re doing now?”
I was taken aback, and all I could say was “Huh?” but he kept cutting me off and going “huh? huh? huh?” and closing his hand shut in front of my face. I walked away and continued with my shopping, and I heard him chuckle as I walked off. When I came to pay for my stuff up front I saw him trying to walk out the doors with like fifteen Milky Ways in his hands without paying.
The girl at the counter was very nice about it and professional, and was like “Sir, you need to pay for those first.” At first he kept pretending to be tired and not hear her, but eventually turned back around and brought them to the counter.
When she took one of the bars and started scanning it multiple times, he stopped her and told her to scan them each individually “to prevent any electrical infetterence,” and then turned around and winked at me. I don’t even think that’s a word. After she scanned each bar and put them in a bag and started to say the price, he kept interrupting her by yawning really loudly.
"How sure are you that that is what his body will look like?"
"I'd say about 90% sure his body would look like that."
Plot twist: Parents lied to her about her "dead sister" that never existed and they even framed a pic of a random girl (in this case not that random) so she could behave and eat her veggies.
I personally have my family members.in a group, so I can easily block them from seeing specific posts, if I want to be offensive. I imagine these types of people do the same.
We made a web memorial for her its called gettyimages.
"but I don't like carrots"
"HERE COMES THE AIRPLAAAANE"
She probably just blocked the person who called her out. I mean, how else could you possibly justify a fuckup like that?
I don't want to eat my caworts!
Well, if you don't you'll end up like your sister.
I don't have a sister.
That's because she didn't eat her carrots.
Did she get sick and die?!
Worse, she got 9/11'd.
Glares at father
And it wouldn't have happened if she ate her carrots like a good girl.
"But Katy Perry just emailed me and gave me free concert tickets!"
Seriously though getting upvotes is stupidly easy without the need to lie
If you lie, you will be caught eventually unless you keep your history squeaky clean by wiping all past comments, and people will tag you as a liar leading you to being called out and downvoted constantly
Be a true karma whore and just spit stupid memes and beat that Dead horse into the ground until you start getting downvoted for it, it works much better and will save you from having to start over
She died at 9 of 11? But it's only half 12!
There are two things I don't understand about these people:
What void in their life makes them do this?
How naive are they to think people would fall for it?
Who randomly has a photo of a young Katy Perry hanging up in their living room, though?
hey its me ur cousin
On reddit, everyone is smarter than each other.
This goes way beyond weird and cringe. This is a sociopathic level ploy.
"OMG you'll never believe this, Katy Perry is my dead sister's twin sister!"
Maybe it came with the frame?
How many potatoes does it take to kill an Irishman?
Know when to die in your sleep
No no, he said C-list not C-cup
I mean if my friend posted that, and I wasn't readily able to recognize a youth picture of a celebrity I don't care for, I would most likely not just consider it bullshit.
Holy shit I'm going to start using that line
Or a stock photo. Just remember to remove the watermark first.
Some people will friend hundreds of people, most of which they barely know, some of which they might not know at all.
I know the feeling... And what was Obama doing the whole time? Nothing!
Plot twist: KP was actually her sis who escaped that family by making them believe she died in 9/11 so she can go kiss a girl.
Lay low for a week before posting about how you totally help out at the children's hospital
Plot twist: The guy photoshopped a picture of the girls dead sister into katy perry search results, and no one bothered to double check if it was there.
Does it count as lying for karma if everyone knows you're lying?
This reminds me of all of those people (Steve Rannazzisi and Tania Head) who lied being in the twin towers and ended up getting mercilessly shitted on once they were found out.
I'd probably be having a good 'ol stroke too if I'd just fucking crushed someone that hard
I admittedly still don't know how to do that
bragged about having the tallest building downtown now that the twin towers collapsed.
And given that isn't/wasn't even factual, he's an insensitive moron.
The scientists in questions can be found here.
Joke's on him, now he has the phrase "Katy Perry young" in his search history
Was my thoughts exactly. I mean they could make different accounts or something I guess. If that is the case, what is a even sadder life they live than just lying to get attention.
Think it might be something like a milder case of munchausen syndrome or some related disease that House did not teach me about?
"Make sure you accurately render her big white teeth"
Hello, I'm an old timer and was hoping you could help.
Are these random people commenting on her profile? It's been a long time since I used Facebook but "back in my day" it was just people that you knew.
So just wondering, assuming people actually know you on FB (isn't that the point) then why would anyone think they wouldn't get called out?
I'm so confused. When did Facebook turn into an anonymous posting thing?
Half the population is stupider than the average person.
