Manti Te’o deletes Twitter account ahead of NFL draft; Hilarity ensues

Heh. As Twitchy reported, Notre Dame’s Manti Te’o’s fake girlfriend hoax went on for months. Te’oing became the new Eastwooding and even Donald Trump got in on the buzz-filled action.

Now comes word that Manti Te’o deleted his @MTeo_5 Twitter account during the Super Bowl. Yet another harrowing result of the power outage?

ESPN reports that he is taking an “indefinite leave” to prepare for the NFL draft.

Others find a way to carry on. Let the mockery begin! Twitter gives a send-off as only it can.
