People are dumb, gullible, naive, whatever you want to call it.
Don’t believe me? Go outside and talk to 10 random people, and you’ll probably come to the conclusion that at least two of those people were total idiots. I know that may sound cruel but sadly, its probably true.
There are a lot of people easily fooled into believing something that is simply not true, most of the time be because it confirms their preconceived beliefs and ideas.
Well, a lot of people were fooled into believing that the New York Jets had actually signed Colin Kaepernick to a 1 year/$9 million deal.
But just one look at this tweet and one can easily figure out that it’s false. The handle is @SuperToughScene, who has ever heard of that before? Does that even sound like a reputable news organization? No, not even in the slightest. Also, if they were legitimate and breaking such a major signing, wouldn’t they be verified?
But this didn’t stop from a ton of people from believing it.
