Gordon Ramsay's dwarf doppelganger porn star eaten by badgers? Nope! Percy Foster

A while back headlines started popping up everywhere claiming a dwarf named Percy Foster who looked a lot like celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, had tragically been eaten alive after falling into a den full of badgers.

The bizarre news story was too juicy, with too many angles for journalists to resist. So, newspapers, even legitimate ones, started printing papers like this…

Still to this day, August 9th of 2022 you can find articles claiming this bogus story as real.

The problem is, this never happened and worse than that, it’s not clear if Percy Foster even existed at all.

As a Huffington Post reporter found out afterwards, Percy Foster was most likely a figment in the imagination of someone at a website called The Sunday Sport. Known for making up bogus stories and sharing them all over the internet, like the onion.

Sunday Sport’s Original Post about Percy Foster being eaten by badgers. Check out the small tent, lol.

There’s nothing wrong with the actions of the Sunday Sport. There’s a place for satirical news on the internet. The problems arise when news organizations that claim to be legitimate, start repeating those stories as fact without checking if they’re true or not.

As I have shown in the past, with the Japanese Bagel Head Hoax, it’s best to be careful with outrageous stories. Just because it’s on the internet and looks legitimate doesn’t mean it is.

I realize I post about crazy and bizarre news stories very often, but I always try to make sure they are true before I do. The truth is, if I can do it, there’s no excuse for major news organizations reporting a bogus story as fact.

If they happen to be fooled and report a bogus story, don’t leave the story on the internet as if it’s true. Fix it, it’s not difficult to update an internet page. Do better!
