The rumor originator took to their blog to explain:
Well, well. Today was an interesting experiment in the power of social media – or should I say, the insanity.
Yesterday, I posted a short, funny (or so I thought) piece about what would be on TV in the year 2025. I figured instead of looking back as most people do this time of year, I’d look into the future. I used my CRYSTAL BALL to see CSI: Mars, a 5-year old Doctor Who and Jensen and Jared on the Simpsons (NOT!).
Several people chose to take only the line about the boys and republish it on Twitter, sans the whole “Crystal Ball 2025 TV season” part and it went wild from there. Anyone who read the WHOLE article understood the context. Unfortunately, as it made its way around the internet, that context was lost.
It was a joke – Jensen and Jared are not going to be on “The Simpsons.”
I guess going forward, I should refrain from creative posting and stick to delivering nothing but facts – or maybe people just need to not believe everything they read until they have all the facts.
So my apologies to Jensen, Jared, their reps and the people at Warner Brothers who had to spend time unraveling this silly mess. And to the folks at The Simpsons – if you’d like to get me out of this jam by actually hiring the boys to voice an episode – I’d be ever grateful.
