Ultimate irony: Lennay Kekua lectured others on faking deaths
In an ultimate ironic twist, the person tweeting from the fabricated Lennay Kekua identity once lectured others on faking deaths.
Deadspin continues to publish exclusive information regarding the story they broke last week about Manti Te’o’s girlfriend being a hoax. On Monday, they shared numerous tweets sent from the Twitter accounts of Lennay Kekua and Ronaiah Tuiasosopo. Tuiasosopo (pictured) is believed to be the person behind the hoax. The Twitter accounts have been deleted, but Deadspin was able to recover nearly all of their tweets.
Below are the contents of the three most ironic tweets reportedly sent from the Kekua account. Deadspin adds the time, date, and account from which the tweet was sent. We bolded the contents:
I don’t think joking around with people’s deaths (celebrity or not) is funny. Lame people can’t live a REAL LIFE so they FAKE other’s DEATH.
I believe some people are in your life for the sole purpose of texting and keeping a solid convo. That is all.
#OOMF I saw today looked super different from their avi. I believe that validates the unfollow. Tisk tisk sweetie! You fluckin up.
To be clear, what you’re looking at is the Kekua tweeter saying they don’t think joking around with someone else’s death is funny, seven months before doing the exact same thing. They also said that someone having a misleading picture in their Twitter avatar was a reason to stop following even though they were using the picture of a completely different person. And yes, that’s commentary on someone engaging in the practice of “catfishing.”
Kekua (Tuiasosopo) was actually full of wisdom concerning proper social media etiquette. It’s a shame he/she didn’t follow any of it.
