Photoshop is an truly extraordinary thing. A fake cover of People was all over the internet yesterday (December 26), featuring Taylor Lautner as “out and proud.” The Abduction star was falsley as being “tired of the rumors” and feeling “more liberated and happier” than he’s ever been, according to E! Online.
Russell Simmons thought the cover was real and tweeted his support to Lautner, writing that he was “proud of Taylor Lautner for his bravery and his courage.”
When someone let the Def Jams honcho know that the cover was a hoax, Simmons hopped back on the social media site. “Disappointed that people would joke about someone coming out about their sexuality. Let Taylor Lautner be whoever he wants to be…” Simmons tweeted.
