Celebs react to Manti Te'o's girlfriend's death hoax

Washington, Jan. 18 (ANI): Manti Te'o's girlfriend's death hoax has caused a number of some celebrities passing comments on the sportsman.

Retired tennis star Andy Roddick wrote, "I think I believe Te'o . . . There is no way that somebody would make up a fake person and have them die of something tragic (I hope). If he was involved, then he's just insane . . . I really hope he's just guilty of being gullible . . . "

Model/Actress Brooklyn Decker (and Rodick's wife) tweeted, "Andy Rodick. Surprise! Hoax! I don't exist."

Comedian Seth Meyers posted, "These Te'o jokes are all very funny but let's all try and remember that a person who never existed is dead."

Model Christine Teigenwrote on her Twitter account, "My love of catfish has intersected with Erin Andrew's world of football and there is just some beautiful texting happening now."

'Extra' host Mario Lopez posted, "Is it bad that I find this whole Manti Te'o episode the funniest thing I've ever heard? Unbelievable."

Comedian Arsenio Hall tweeted "The great thing about dating Manti Te'o's girlfriend is, you never have to wear a condom!"

Actor Rainn Wilson wrote, "I don't know what's worse, a dead girlfriend or a dead girlfriend who never existed."

'Modern Family' star Eric Stonestreet posted If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, swims like a duck and quacks like a duck , it's a made up dead girlfriend story for publicity.

The Notre Dame linebacker and Heisman finalist had made national headlines in September when it was reported that his grandmother and girlfriend had expired away on the same day.

In honor of the loved ones he lost, Te'o led the Fighting Irish to an undefeated season, Us magazine reported.

But on Wednesday, January 16, website Deadspin released a shocking report that his late girlfriend, Lennay Marie Kekua, never existed. (ANI)
