Taylor Lautner just cannot catch a break. The poor kid gets hounded for going to dinner with a few gays, and now, someone releases a fake People cover featuring the actor and his announcement that he has come out of the closet. It’s the holidays guys, back off.
The cover, which you can see here, showed the actor with the line: “Out & Proud.” The cover looked so real, fans and celebs were in a frenzy sending it to one another and congratulating the star on his bravery. Even Russell Simmons was fooled, tweeting his support for Taylor’s “bravery and courage.”
A quick look at the sidebar on the fake mag however shows a picture of Brad Pitt with a very, very young Zahara from a 2006 cover. People also confirmed the cover was indeed fake.
Sadly, this does mean we are inevitably in for yet another Kardashian on the cover of the glossy this week. Boo.
