@BZRKNomNom Jack Schlossberg isn't gay. Queerty had previously reported: "John Bouvier Kennedy Schlossberg, better known as 'Jack' to his friends at Yale, is the only grandson of President John F. Kennedy. And he's also gay." So if it's not true, how did his supposed coming out of the closet even start? Tweets have been floating around the Internet that seem to have come from Schlossberg. These tweets claim to announce his coming out of the closet, but are only the result of an imposter. Schlossberg is editor-in-chief of Yale blog The Bulldog and it appeared as of he had posted a piece titled, 'Being Gay At Yale'. A link was posted to the twitter @JJSchlossberg, except when you would go to click on the link, the article didn't even exist. The Schlossberg poser followed that article post with these messages on twitter: "I would identify myself first as a proud Yalie. And then...that." "Yale was one of the first academic institutions in America to tolerate openly gay students and professors."  And then only after 15 minutes after the article was linked, a tweet was posted: "@JJSchlossberg: @MikelFernandez3 our senior editors @eschindz & Emma Rappaport took it down. I have no idea about the reason behind it. I'm sorry." On Feb 9th, another tweet from the Schlossberg imposter was posted: "If you're gay and you live in an ideal world there would be no need to make a public announcement. Congrats to Michael Sam." When asked about the whole twitter conversation and article, Jack Schlossberg had this to say:  "The article was written by someone who impersonates me online. I did not write the article and, for the record, am not gay. Thanks." "I believe the link [to the article] was a fake in the first place," Schlossberg continued. In the end, those tweets came from an account that impersonates Schlossberg, which has since been deleted.
