I don't think I've ever had less sympathy for a subject than I have for Naya in the Manti Te'o documentary. Don't you dare make you destroying someone's life a celebration of your process. Like fuck that shit. #Untold

There is so much to unpack in that Manti Te’o documentary. I have zero sympathy for Naya/Ronaiah. Trying to mask this crazy act as part of her trans journey. She deserves nothing, let alone the peace she has in life now while Manti’s life was changed forever.#Untold #Netflix

Traumatic story of Manti Te’o and how he became a victim of catfish scam
Story of Untold: The Girlfriend Who Didn’t Exist and How it unfolded with Manti Te’o
American football player Manti Te’o represented the University of Notre Dame in Indiana. Unfortunately for him, he fell for a lie and ended up dating a woman who never existed.

Everything began when Te’o started dating Lennay Kekua, whom he met online, and they dated for about a year. A vehicle accident and subsequent leukaemia diagnosis meant that the woman spent the majority of that period in the hospital. She resided in California and he in Indiana, but they spoke on the phone every day, and he ended up being one of her biggest supporters as she battled the illness. Te’o learned that his grandmother and partner had passed away six hours apart in October 2012, but the American football player skipped his wife’s burial.
It was determined that the woman didn’t exist a few months after the incident. In actuality, a youngster had impersonated Lennay Kekua.
