We Got Punked — Tyga Graffiti Story Was Fake
So last week, we shared a little story about a 21-year-old woman who got arrested for spray-painting Tyga’s rhymes all over buildings in her town. It was a pretty funny story, really (scroll to the bottom). It’s a shame it wasn’t true. That’s right — we got punked.
In the original story we posted last week, 21-year-old Alyssa Alyssa Bloechl showed her stripes for Tyga by plastering several buildings with graffiti and then running from the cops while screaming “ten ten ten twenties on ya t*tties, b*tch,” which — let’s face it — is an awesome story.
Shortly afterwards, though, we discovered it was a hoax. SOHH.com reports that, in fact, Bloechl is a student at the University of Wisconsin-Platteville and she works on the student newspaper there. Every semester, the paper publishes a “fake news” edition, and this year all the editors had fake arrest stories written about them, kind of like an April Fool’s-type joke.
So, no, Alyssa Bloechl did not run around singing “Rack City” while tagging the skyline. Apparently, she and her friends are … a bit more creative than that. And that’s what we get for trusting the Internet.
