It seems that Kevin Durant wasn't the only one using a fake account recently.
The Warriors' superstar was recently caught red-handed using a fake Twitter account to anonymously take shots at people on Twitter, as well as defend himself from the KD haters.
Now it's been discovered that another notable figure is connected to a fake account, as Jane Skinner Goodell, wife of NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, has been defending her husband using a fake account.
A twitter account under the name "Jones smith" puts reporters on blast when they criticize Roger Goodell. It actually belongs to the the NFL commissioner's wife, Jane Skinner: https://t.co/AjZzgO2y6O— Andrew Beaton (@andrewlbeaton) October 12, 2017
The Wall Street Journal discovered that Skinner Goodell would use a fake Twitter under the name "Jones Smith" in order to respond to people who had harsh words for Goodell.
“It was a REALLY silly thing to do and done out of frustration—and love.” Mrs. Goodell said in a written statement, per WSJ's Andrew Beaton. “As a former media member, I’m always bothered when the coverage doesn’t provide a complete and accurate picture of a story. I’m also a wife and a mom. I have always passionately defended the hard-working guy I love—and I always will. I just may not use Twitter to do so in the future!”
This should serve as a warning to any other athletes or public figures using fake accounts to defend themselves on social media. It's easy to mess up, and not worth the risk.
