when many thought Manti was the perpetrator and not the victim. The theory was that the perpetrator was gay. And that theory appears to have had some validity, except that the perpetrator wasn't Te'o, but Tuiasosopo, who's essentially admitted to being in gay and falling in love with Manti.
Now, I suppose, people are curious because Manti fell in love over the phone and internet with a dude pretending to be a chick. Maybe they're still not entirely sure he was fooled, but I still submit that theory makes no sense and is at odd with the facts.
And just so I'm clear, I think the entire line of questioning and potential discrimination should be illegal under federal law.
