As many often state, the internet has no chill, and it continues to be the source of all kinds of situations. Recent years have seen increasing popularity in hoax news stories. Many of these stories have been picked up by mainstream media outlets, thus fueling the joke.
However, as this has continued, many have begun to pick up on the hoaxing. Recently, there was a story circulating the internet about tax refunds being delayed until October. Although the story is overall unbelievable, there were some who fell for it.
This time, it wasn’t a journalist who unearthed the truth, it was Turk who put the story on blast. He has a huge Instagram following, so Turk used this to let the people know there is nothing to worry about. The first clue Turk gave the people is that the source comes from a fake news site, as he posted a story from a legit outlet that cleared things up.
