Lying is one of those things that you should never do. However, there will always be some sort of circumstance that makes us believe that lying is a good idea. But then, we have to tell another lie to cover up the original lie, and then our lives turn into one huge mess. Before the invention of the internet and social media, we might have been able to get away with lying as long as we didn’t put it on paper. If there is one place in the world where you shouldn’t lie, the Internet is on top of it all. Once you put something online, it can be screenshotted, and then it lives forever. If you post a lie about yourself, or try to deceive others in any way, there are a plethora of internet detectives who will fact check you. But alas, there are still people who think they can get away with posting untruths online and then wonder why they’re paying the consequences.
In this video are ten people who got called out online. From faking six-pack abs, to denying Justin Bieber, the people in this video aren’t the sharpest when it comes to covering up their tracks. There are also people who like to stage photos like pretending to be sleep or having the sun in their eyes, and yet they give themselves away by forgetting crucial details! Or, if you want to pretend you have a glamorous life, you might not want to steal movie stills and pretend they’re your long lost grandparent. You might want to avoid saying that you do all of your own stunts when there are photos and IMDB to confirm that’s a lie. What is also popular is stealing stills from old movies and making up a new story with it, assuming that someone wouldn’t catch on to the deception. And finally, you never want to steal someone else’s artwork and pretend it is your own. It won’t end well for anyone.
