One radio station in Chicago decided to joke about his emotional state on Tuesday, and shameless webloid MediaTakeOut took the bait and reported that Ray J had suffered an on-air “nervous breakdown.”
Here’s what happened.
The phony call was apparently intended to make Ray J out to be fragile and confused, even though it’s clearly a fake.
But MediaTakeOut and other outlets seized on the supposed on-air “breakdown,” treating it as thought it were real.
The person behind the goof, a comedian named Leon Rogers, tweeted, “LISTEN TO ALL OF YOU NIMRODS THAT REALLY THOUGHT THAT WAS RAY J SHAME ON YOU IT WAS A JOKE!”
Of course, by then the damage was done.
Hear the prank that fooled MediaTakeOut and other outlets below.
