You won't see the People magazine cover featuring "Twilight" star Taylor Lautner, along with the headline "Out and Proud," at the newsstand. It's a fake.
The image bears the celebrity magazine's title logo across the top, with 19-year-old Lautner brooding below it in a leather jacket and jeans.
The "exclusive" cover story claims that Lautner is "tired of rumors," and that readers could expect for him to open up "about his decision to finally come out." Dated to look like a January 7, 2012 issue of the mag, a quote on the cover has Lautner saying, "I'm more liberated, and happier than I've ever been."
But reps for People magazine confirm to CNN that the cover is "absolutely a Twitter joke that went viral," and is an "absolute fake."
The faux People cover has spread quickly across the Web, and it seems some, like Russell Simmons, were fooled.
According to E! Online, Simmons at first tweeted that he was "proud of Taylor Lautner for his bravery and courage."
Later, presumably after being looped in on the fake story, the industry mogul said he's "Disappointed that people would joke about someone coming out about their sexuality. Let Taylor Lautner be whoever he wants to be..."
To quote Peggy Bundy...."Gay as a debutant"...and so says my gaydar.
for every gay guy there is more P***Y for me. thats all i care about.
who is this guy?
G@y people talk funny.
u smell & walk funny madfarter.
@Dee1 – the cultures where the government abused the poor were the ones that toppled and/or fell. Read YOUR history books.
Yeah. She is one of them lesbeans. A gay one.
i bet ur alone EVERY Valentines Day Emmy.
Well, I knew he was gay a long time ago. It's so obvious! And it was confirmed when his people had him throw a football on Jay Leno and talk up his martial arts blackbelt awards on David Letterman. Me thinks she doth protest too much! Gay!
go Jack off. That's all the action u would get.
Are you insecure that he's more athletic than you? Sure sounds like it.
Every nation or empire that has had gay culture proliferate boldly and accepted it willingly has toppled or fallen....read your history books
Hilarious (yet sad) to see someone trying so hard to be so smart, yet doing so without any ability to write coherently.
ergo, we're doomed. brilliant deduction.
So is he saying he is gar or hes mad because the magizine is saying he claimed to be gay? it was a little confusing for me
Good forhim wether he is or isn't. To anyone who has the courage to come out and say who they are I support you!
Is he the vampire or the wolf? They both seem like tuuurdnockers.
Actually what's wrong with the world is people judging others. Don't understand how someone elses life choices can infuriate you. How I see it is that's what's right with the world the ability to be what you want and do what you want(within reason) how boring would it be if we were all the same color all had the same religion and all had the same orientations....growup and not be so closed minded...
Indeed but the only way you can be "right" is if you are white, conservative, gun-toting, country or rock music listening and believe that your OPINION is the only one that matters...
But Lisa, that's 99% of Congress!
Gay gay gay. thats all u hear about . dumb gays n their pe.nis a55 pumping f@gs
Hmm... Protest a little much, Rex? How is it you found yourself reading about an attractive male celebrity who was rumored to be gay? Hmmmm....?
Rex isn't gay...he really likes little boys. But don't blame him. It was the Twinkies.
Who cares what he is? If he is gay he is gay. I just hope he is happy in what ever choice he makes.
Why is these a photo of a homely VietNamese girl that needs to use a depilatory running along with this story ?
Is there an ounce of the English language in any part of what you just said?!
Yes, Ames, Jacques does have some problems with his grammar, but why don't you explain your error in using a mixed metaphor about a language having physical weight.
I looked and looked, Jacques, but just didn't see your picture up there. And Jacques doesn't sound very Vietnamese.
G@y peeps are all thats wrong with the world
Well, I see you've worked hard to earn your name, Dick.
Stop blaming yourself for everything.
ur parents reproducing is whats wrong w/ this world Richie boy.
He is gay as a brick
I didn't know bricks were gay, let alone, really gay.
Timmy was forced at an early age to be a bicycle stand. Don't blame him.
As soon as he opens his mouth you can tell he's gay. But that's his business. Hope he's happy.
I knew back when he was Shark Boy, he had no real interest in Lava Girl.
Ha ha ha Burga!! Thats Hilarious !! No wonder they didn't get it on!!
DO WE REALLY CARE ? NO
Here's the cliched response to your both inane and cliched question: if you don't care, then why are you even here ?
Because, deep down, Monkey really doesn't care.
