CNN Producer Gets Fantastically Trolled By Rapper’s Fake Ebola Tip

Nice Move

The following is hands down the best trolling job so far in this new, Ebola-ravaged age we’re living in. The troll: a Twitter user who is also apparently a rapper named Southside Vic. The victim: the pretty gullible CNN producer, Michelle Richmond. While Ebola itself is clearly no laughing matter, Vic’s comedic execution in this exchange is sidesplittingly funny.

It all started with this tweet by a Dallas-Fort Worth news anchor:


Clearly, as a joke, @SouthsideVic replied to Gordon, claiming that Ebola’s first U.S. victim was his ex’s uncle. An hour later, enter the story-hungry journalist:

She was pretty polite with her request, I guess. Vic obliged, and Richmond slid right into his DMs.

About 30 minutes later, it sounded promising for Michelle, as Vic had gotten ahold of his ex…but just wait.

Obviously, Michelle doesn’t realize what’s going on, and clearly, I needed to get my hands on that mixtape yesterday if it’s straight fire. Richmond, though, still eager for a story, is relentless about getting in touch with Vic’s “ex…”

Being hilarious and keeping it 100. TFM.

The expert trolling job resulted in Southside Vic’s account getting suspended, which is complete and utter horseshit. Since when is being extremely entertaining a violation of Twitter’s policies?
