Nice work, Huffington Post!
HuffPo got punked by imposter trying to push a mixtape.
Huffington Post bought his outlandish lie about how officers shot “his best friend” in cold blood.

Then he sent Huffington Post a personal message.

And don’t forget to listen to his mixtape.

The prankster is not even from St. Louis.
The Daily Mail reported:

Furious Twitter users have rallied against a prankster who pretended he was best friends with latest police shooting victim Antonio Martin and watched him die at a gas station near Ferguson last night.

Jesus Christo claimed he was there when the 18-year-old was killed and fabricated an account of how a police officer opened fire on Martin when he refused to lie on the ground.

Under the Twitter handle, @DesJuanTheThug, Christo wrote ‘I can’t believe my best friend just died in front of me’ – and the comment was retweeted more than 3,000 times.

He then posted a series of tweets telling people to listen to his mixtape and add him on SoundCloud – an audio platform that allows people to promote their own music.

He had earlier told The Huffington Post how he and Martin were stopped by an officer at a Mobil gas station on North Hanley Road because they matched the description of robbery suspects.

He claimed the officer then searched Martin and was quoted as saying: ‘The officer then stepped back and pulled his weapon and pointed at Antonio and told us to lay on the ground.

Jesus Christo made up a story so people would listen to his tape.
