Troye Sivan Was Catfished by a Fake Greta Thunberg - Find Out What Happened!

Troye Sivan was the victim of a catfishing scheme.

The singer – who recently teased a new song – was catfished by Russian pranksters pretending they were environmental activist Greta Thunberg and her dad.

“Story time: i got catfished,” Troye captioned an Instagram video on Thursday night (March 26). I’m bored and I’ve wanted to tell this story for ages.”

It all started when Troye‘s manager received a phone call from someone who pretended to be Greta‘s dad. The prankster said that they were planning something called “Stars Save the Earth” and they had a whole to-do list that included swimming with sharks with Leonardo DiCaprio, saving the animals in Africa with Prince Harry, and more.

“I was like, ‘Oh my god, this girl is so inspiring, and now she wants to work with me.’ That’s crazy,” Troye said in the video.

Troye‘s manager gave the pranksters his phone number and Troye only exchanged a couple text messages with the fake Greta before they realized what was going on.

After Troye‘s manager talked on the phone with the “dad,” they watched a video of Greta Thunberg‘s real dad and realized it wasn’t the same person.

Turns out, Troye Sivan isn’t the only one who fell for the prank. See what happened to Prince Harry at JustJared.com

Greta Thunberg May Have Had Coronavirus, Has Been In Isolation For 2 Weeks

Greta Thunberg May Have Had Coronavirus, Has Been In Isolation For 2 Weeks

Greta Thunberg reveals she may have contracted COVID-19.

The 17-year-old activist took to Instagram to share that after a trip to Central Europe, she and her dad both had symptoms of the virus, but her dad’s were worse.

“The last two weeks I’ve stayed inside. When I returned from my trip around Central Europe I isolated myself (in a borrowed apartment away from my mother and sister) since the number of cases of COVID-19 (in Germany for instance) were similar to Italy in the beginning. Around ten days ago I started feeling some symptoms, exactly the same time as my father – who traveled with me from Brussels. I was feeling tired, had shivers, a sore throat and coughed,” Greta wrote.

“My dad experienced the same symptoms, but much more intense and with a fever. In Sweden you can not test yourself for COVID-19 unless you’re in need of emergent medical treatment. Everyone feeling ill are told to stay at home and isolate themselves. I have therefore not been tested for COVID-19, but it’s extremely likely that I’ve had it, given the combined symptoms and circumstances,” she added.

Climate Activist Greta Thunberg Says She Would've Wasted Her Time Speaking To Donald Trump on Climate Change

Climate Activist Greta Thunberg Says She Would've Wasted Her Time Speaking To Donald Trump on Climate Change

Greta Thunberg is opening up about the moment she gave President Donald Trump a “death stare” during the U.N. climate summit in New York earlier this year.

In her interview on BBC Radio’s Today program, the 16-year-old climate activist opened up about the moment she saw Trump walk into the summit and how she wasn’t going to waste her time speaking to him.

“Honestly, I don’t think I would have said anything because obviously he’s not listening to scientists and experts, so why would he listen to me?” Greta mused about if she was given the chance to speak to him on the program. “I probably wouldn’t have said anything, I wouldn’t have wasted my time.”

Greta also spoke about the attacks on her regarding her appearance, among other things.

“Those attacks are just funny because they obviously don’t mean anything,” she said. “I guess of course it means something — they are terrified of young people bringing change which they don’t want — but that is just proof that we are actually doing something and that they see us as some kind of threat.”

Greta was just recently named one of TIME’s People of the Year.
