The story is definitely twisted: but is it true?
Two hunky male models in a relationship. One incredible story about how they discovered through a DNA test that they were actually twins and thousands of people who made the whole thing go viral are in for a surprise. It's fake news.
Not that the media needs any more accusations of false reporting, but this story has actually become somewhat of a monster and an example of what people are willing to believe.
The story was first written for The World Daily News, apparently, if you put the words “World” and “Daily” in the title of your publication more people are likely to believe it.
The story went like this.
Two super sexy New Jersey men named Jason Osbourne and Alex Brown were in a loving relationship until they took a DNA test.
In the article "Jason" reveals partially in “tears”:
“We did the tests partly as a joke and to shut up some of our friends who were constantly teasing us about being cousins.
“Never did I expect to learn we were in fact long lost twins.”
“The man that I expected to spend my life with, my soul mate, is, in fact, my twin brother. I don’t know if I have to cry or to jump with joy.”
The kicker is when Jason denounces taking the test because it has ruined his life on many levels:
“First I learn that my gay lover is my twin brother, now I learn I was adopted and that my parents have lied to me all my life.
“What a heck of way to celebrate my 25th birthday.
“Sometimes I wish we had never gone for that DNA test.”
Alas, the story is completely fabricated and The World Daily News’ only priority is to generate viral stories based on nothing but the imagination. And this one definitely worked.
People shared this item 32,000 times quickly making it go viral.
In actuality, the duo in the picture (left) are popular twins Alex and Charlie Kotze known as K2. They are aspiring fitness models with a huge social following.
We at San Diego Gay and Lesbian News aren't accustomed to bringing you fake news, but in this case, we thought you ought to know.
