Josh Shaw’s Fake Story Sparks Very Real Twitter Reactions

Josh Shaw went from hero to zero real quick. Taking a page out of Manti Te’o’s book, Shaw lied about saving his nephew from drowning. He shot for the stars but not even the clouds could catch him from falling back to earth.

Any controversial story involving USC is likely to fire up Twitter. Add in the fact that it was the Trojans’ team captain fabricating one of the most heroic stories we’ve heard involving a college football player, and you have a recipe for wittiness.

Following is a collection of the best reactions.

    I like the other story that the university said his story mislead the coaches, teamates and university. MISLEAD? See this guy is perfect for the NFL, drop the scholorship, kick him out of school…..bye bye
