(Our thoughts exactly.)
Well this is odd. After those reports of Kimo Leopoldo‘s death were discovered to be an Internet message board-driven hoax, many of us were quick to dump haterade on TMZ, the celebrity gossip outlet that "confirmed" the news after it was first reported, and helped the false report snowball out of control. Though TMZ quickly took the story down when Kimo showed up breathing, we never heard an apology from Harvey Levin and his gang of misfits — and we’re never going to:
So in other words, Kimo hears that he’s died of a heart-attack, tells one of his people to tell TMZ that it’s true, then gives us an alibi for his long silence by saying he didn’t wake up until "around noon-ish this morning." That’s what Levin’s saying anyway. Honestly, it’s hard to know who to believe — the parasitic gossip-dealer or the cop-impersonating yo-yo expert. They’re both such pillars of trustworthiness.
