Why you should never believe gossip! People reveal the VERY weird (and untrue) rumours they’ve heard about themselves – from faking their own death to escaping a psychiatric unit

  • People from around the world shared rumours they’ve heard about themselves
  • Posting on Whisper, many revealed they’ve been accused of having an STI
  • One woman recounted a rumour circulating in school that she was pregnant 
  • Rumours can quickly spiral from harmless gossip to hurtful comments, as this eye-opening online thread proves.
