Jason Derulo must have been *pretty* confused to wake up this morning to find a trending topic in his name, after a photo of him apparently falling down the stairs at the Met Gala 2015 went CRAZY on Twitter.
And when we say falling, this is probably the most epic fall/stunt/display of painful acrobatics we’ve ever seen on the red carpet.
Errr, except one problem. It was all a hoax.
We’re obviously glad really, because this looks SO, SO painful, but it still made us snort with laughter way too much. Are we terrible people?
Also, whoever this actually is, we hope they’re actually okay.
It all started with just one person sharing this photo, joking that the man in the pale pink suit was 25-year-old Jason Deruuullooo becoming some sort of human slinky gone wrong.
However, it never takes the internet long to run with something, and the tweet ended up being taken for literal fact, resulting in a huge trending topic on Twitter.
One user wrote: “JASON DERULO FELL DOWN THE STAIRS AT THE MET GALA I CAN’T STOP SCREAMING TRJNGEIFJSOKLM MMM WHATCHA SAYYYYYYY.”
Another tweeted: “Also I just saw a photo on my TL of Jason Derulo toppling down the stairs at the Met Gala and I’m dying from more than hay fever now.”
All was not as it seemed though, with Jason’s rep being forced to deny that the singer was even at the event.
Jason himself also responded to the incident with a brilliant MazSight meme, writing: “Lmao I’m at rehearsal in LA. Fuq ya’ll! Lol.” [sic]
In fact, this photo is actually from Cannes Film Festival in 2011, weirdly. Yep, REALLY.
So there you go. Jason Derulo is fine and Twitter is still fooling the world everyday. Kinda.
