The Internet Reacts To Elan Gale Pranking the Internet, Finally Implodes On Itself
Okay, nothing imploded. But if anything should, it's the Internet.

Everyone had an opinion (including us) about Bachelor producer Elan Gale’s tale of sticking it to an unruly airline passenger on his flight. So of course, now that he’s finally admitted that he faked the whole thing, everyone has an opinion about that, too. But unlike the original Diane story, these tweets are actually funny. Zing!
If I tweet the hypothetical title “No, Virginia, There Is No Diane In 7A,” can I keep it from being written?

In the wake of this Diane in 7A thing, I’m really beginning to question the existence of the B. in Apartment 23.

1. Write article about a human, giving their first and last name 2. Call them bully 3. Post their photo 4. Eat lunch 5. Pat self on back — elan gale (@theyearofelan) December 2, 2013
That one’s from Elan himself, who was apparently very upset by the fact that so many people thought he was a bully after hearing his story about being a bully to somebody. Not that the Internet let him get away with that line of thinking for very long, of course:
@theyearofelan 1. Pretend to behave like asshole on plane 2. Whine when people criticize you for it 3. Learn nothing

Welp, @theyearofelan apparently wants to get on with his life and is admitting he made up the whole thing. Somewhere Andy Kaufrman shrugs.

I’m not saying you’re stupid if you thought Diane in 7A was real. I’m saying you’re stupid if you thought it was funny.

We’re inclined to agree with that last one. Like, a whole bunch.
