Yesterday we shared this blog exposing Woburn High School senior Niko Poulakidas who contacted Mike Lupica on Twitter, lied about being at the Red Sox game on Monday night, and claimed he was 15 rows behind a guy yelling racial slurs at Fenway Park.
Well we started interacting with him a lot yesterday as he realized the jig was up. He had been exposed and his 15 minutes of fame blew up in his face. More than anything he was a little shithead for pulling a prank like this and thinking it was harmless. Boston will be labeled as a racist city for another 25 years because of this. Adam Jones had NO ONE backing up his story until Niko came long. Mike Lupica gladly printed his story, but hasn’t said a word since Niko was exposed.
Anyway, we really just wanted Niko to publicly admit that he lied, even though we all know he did already. Not that we need him to tell us he did, but because it would FORCE Lupica and these other hacks to retract their work. We made it clear to Niko that we don’t think he’s a bad kid. We’ve all been 17 before. He’s just a kid from Woburn who was trying to be funny in what he thought was a harmless prank. He had no idea it would get this big. So we told him that if he came forward and admitted he was lying, we’d call off the dogs and ask turtle riders to leave him alone. We all fucked up when we were kids, but luckily many of us did it before social media was a thing. Here’s how the negotiations went:
So there you have it. Confirmation from Niko that he has contacted Mike Lupica and made it clear that everything he printed in this article was a lie. At the very least, Niko told Lupica that he was considering telling everyone that he was lying. Any journalist with ANY amount of integrity would retract a column of this magnitude since it’s clear that the person he interviewed isn’t stable and isn’t willing to stand by what he said. Lupica has this information and has left the column in tact, because the mainstream media is FAKE NEWS. Donald Trump isn’t kidding. It’s literally fake. Fake, fake, fake, fake, fake news. No other way around it. He knows he has a false story up, and he’s keeping it up anyway because it fits his agenda. But please, tell me more about how Turtleboy can’t be trusted as a source.
And as you can see at the end there, Niko feels conflicted because he’s worried about what all his friends will think when he has to admit that he lied to millions of people. Too bad Niko, we were willing to help you out, but you half assed it. The offer still stands.
P.S. Niko is apparently an Orioles fan too:
Adam Jones plays for the Orioles. Just sayin.
