There's a fake story making the rounds about Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and his girfriend Olivia Munn who supposedly made an appearance together at an event in Appleton, Wisconsin tuesday morning to show support for Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
The story quotes Rodgers as saying:
Today is about Bernie Sanders,his message is resonating with the youth of this country and it's an exciting thing to witness.
And Munn supposedly said:
Bernie is one of those once-in-a-lifetime candidates. I think he would make a wonderful president.
But United Media Publishing is a well known hoax website that publishes made up news stories that get people just excited or angry enough so they share them on social media. The summary that people on Facebook or other social networks get to see looks quite convincing too:
Aaron Rodgers & Olivia Munn Make Surprise Appearance at Bernie Sanders Event - United Media Publishing
APPLETON, WI - Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers and actress/model girlfriend Olivia Munn made a surprise public appearance together at the Fox Cities Performing Arts Center in Appleton, WI, Tuesday morning to show support for Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders.
But local Appleton/Fox Cities news outlet Post-Crescent already denied the story.
Despite the fact that the entire thing is not true at all, it has been spreading like wildfire online. People are probably looking for other celebrities to endorse Bernie Sanders after a video of comedian Sarah Silverman doing just that went viral earlier today.
