Gay-themed website Queerty reports that Jack Schlossberg, the grandson of President John F. Kennedy and a junior at Yale, came out as gay in an essay for the Yale Herald before the paper’s editors mysteriously deleted his column and his Twitter account disappeared. Unfortunately for Camelot, the essay—and the Twitter account—are fake.
“The article was written by someone who impersonates me online,” Schlossberg told Gawker via his Yale University email address. “I did not write the article and, for the record, am not gay. Thanks.”
He added: “I believe the link [to the article] was a fake in the first place.”
You never know.
