So apparently Manti Te’o isn’t the first football player to be courted by a non-existent girl on Twitter. The NFL’s official website has just posted a new report that states that a few NFL players recently found out that they were being fooled by a fake female Twitter follower for several months.

While Te’o remains to be the only player to admit that he was in an actual relationship with a non-existent woman, the report claims that at least four players on the Washington Redskins were “involved” with a fictional Twitter follower named Sidney Ackerman late last year.

Ackerman used the Twitter handle @RedRidnH00d and a photo of porn star C.J Miles to start online relationships with these players.

After duping them into believing she was real, they exchanged erotic and romantic text messages for a number of months before the players realized that the videos and pictures the false identity had sent them were of the aforementioned porn star.

The players then brought the issue to the attention of Redskins director of player development Philip Daniels. He warned the other players and chased down the woman who was posing as Sidney Ackerman.

“I think it was all about attention,” Daniels told NFL.com. “I don’t think it was any of the other stuff. It was just about being able to talk to them, pretending to be someone they aren’t. It was never a situation where guys were giving money or anything like that.”

It just goes to show that professional athletes’ social media accounts are just as susceptible to false advertising as ours are.

We know that when a gorgeous model with a hot body either messages or friends us on Facebook, 90% of the time she is advertising a dating or escort service. She doesn’t want to be our friend, she just wants us to be suckers and make her some cash. That’s just what “Sidney Ackerman” was after.

Just because football players get to fuck porn stars all the time doesn’t mean they can’t fall victim to the same traps we do.
