Ryan Gosling Did Not Adopt a Baby And We Are All Really Sad
A fake Facebook page shared a picture of the 33-year-old blue-eyed heartthrob holding a baby with a huge grin on his face and a story about how he adopted a little boy the year before.
The story continued, “1 year later after the adoption, his biological father wanted him. Of course, I put up a fight, but he won. That 1 year of being his father taught me how to love unconditionally. We have to stop and be thankful for our children and children should stop and be thankful for their parents. What I truly learned most of all is, every child needs love.”
It turns out the whole thing was a ploy to get people to buy t-shirts. The post included a link (now gone) to an “exclusive limited-edition” T-shirt people could buy to be entered to win a date with the Notebook star, and all proceeds were to go toward the Orphanage Home Foundation–a program that doesn’t even exist.
The fake post received over 944,000 likes and 52,000 shares… But the worst part is the tiny heart break everyone felt when they found out that it was all just a cruel, cruel joke (that no one found funny).
