Surprise, Surprise: Bathroom Stall Slut Story A Hoax

Katrina didn’t believe this story for a second

Or is it? Some dude from Fuse — who claims to have broken the story about the now-pregnant chick who fucked a dude in the bathroom stall at a Motorhead/Megadeth show in Chicago [Edit: I was sent a copy of the ad, and never saw Fuse write a piece — emailed me with a follow-up about the slut. Which is weird…obviously, dude is hit-hungry.

Turns out I was right, and it was bullshit.

This Fuse dude claims he tried to contact the author of the infamous Craigslist post, and “long after I’d moved on from the hope that the woman who put up the ad would email me back, she did.” First of all, this is a statement I don’t buy: He’s been thinking about this broad nonstop since his post went up — trust me.

“I was so excited to talk to her to further the story! In her email, she said that she’d be willing to talk but mentioned that I had to call her ‘Crash,’ to protect her job. I emailed back my phone number. A few hours later, at about 11:00 PM, Crash called me.”

Fuse writer dude claims “we spoke for about thirty seconds, and she told me, nervously, that she was 23 (not 28 as the ad said) and from a small town in Kansas (not Chicago as the ad said) and then, once it started to set in that this was a hoax and I was kind of struggling for words and thinking about the look on my editor’s face when I told him, she said, anxiously and quietly, ‘I’m going to make this easy for you: It was a joke. I’m really, really sorry. I didn’t mean to trick you.’”
This, I can maybe believe happened. Maybe she called and they spoke for 30 seconds. Maybe. But really, I don’t buy it, and consider the remainder of his story bullshit.

His word against the world, I guess. I think maybe he Stephen Glass-ed this one, and was even behind the initial post. Either way, he shouldn’t have run with a story based on Craigslist ad information…not as fact, anyway.

Dude did this for hits. To make his bosses happy. Just like Stephen Glass did. Why do I think all of this? The way this girls allegedly speaks…let’s just say this dude can not write women well. Let’s hear some audio, dude.

Here’s what he says she said: “It started from not sleeping very much and starting a new medication that kept me awake. I was just so bored being awake all day and all night, and I was surfing the internet non-stop. I read some Craigslist Missed Connections posts and I found them funny, so I decided to put one up to, ummm… Make this boy laugh…he’s a friend. Just a friend. The ad has inside jokes in it, but only he would understand them.”

Read the rest of this Fuse dude’s hoax here, if you really care.

Here’s what I think happened. Fuse experienced the best traffic of their pathetic existence, and dude flubbed this whole thing just because his bosses kept moaning about how great a follow-up would be.

Why do I think this? Read this paragraph from his piece.
“By the end of the week, my post had been written about on Gawker, the New York Daily News, the International Business Times and about a hundred other outlets. The post had become, especially in the music world, a viral sensation, and it was the most successful thing I’d written for this website by several orders of magnitude. Almost a quarter of a million people have read it.”
Congrats, dude. She had all these news outlets contact her, and she got back to you. Proof. Where’s the proof, Glass?
