Photoshopped Little League graphic fools adult film actor, some media outlets

A Photoshopped graphic that made the social media rounds during the Little League World Series on Saturday fooled many, including the adult film actor mentioned in the fake graphic.

On Saturday, a graphic during a Little League World Series game apparently showed a Little League player listing porn actor Johnny Sins as his favorite actor. Sins himself caught wind of the faux graphic and posted it on his Instagram page with the caption, "Haha, this kid is going to have game!  #llws "

As it turns out, the caption was faked, and ESPN noted this later on Saturday while posting the real graphic. Rather than list Johnny Sins as his favorite actor, the kid had listed science as his favorite subject.

The alleged culprit also eventually admitted what he had done. Nonetheless, a number of media outlets retweeted and wrote web stories about the fake graphic before the truth came out. It's another unfortunate reminder of how fast fake news can travel.
