Russell Crowe was fooled by a satirical article about himself on Twitter

Ah Russ, not again.

CELEBRITIES GETTING FOOLED on the internet is one of life’s simple, deep pleasures.

The latest victim of social media is Russell Crowe, who was taken in by The Onion’s offshoot, Clickhole. The satire website quoted Russell in an article about cultural differences in Australia and the States, all made up of course.

Whenever I hear an American say Aussies drive on the wrong side of the road, I just lose it.
You ever think about how those people grew up driving on the wrong side of the road, watched a lot of people get hurt on the wrong side of the road, die on the wrong side of the road, while other people cheered from the right side of the road?
Australia has a thing called Highway Fights, so it’s touchy.

Crowe didn’t realise that it was all just a joke and tweeted at their Twitter account, saying:


He was later alerted to the nature of the website, but it was too damn late.
