Some of you will recall Kane Slater, the Canadian cannabis enthusiast who arrived late to the Hoaxtead party, but has been making up for lost time by bombarding his Facebook ‘Cannabis Cures Cancers’ page with grotesque and offensive lies.
For some reason, his readers—who one presumes are interested in seeking alternative medical treatments for serious disease—have not warmed to this sudden barrage of bilge. At first they reacted with confusion, then hostility, and now they pretty much ignore him and go about their business, much to Kane’s chagrin.
Poor, poor Kane. No one wants to listen to his fabricated stories about a ‘baby-eating child-gang-rape death cult’ that is ‘currently operating child-prostitution rings out of every primary school’ in Hampstead.
So he’s begun to threaten to ‘break up’ with his extremely unco-operative audience, who clearly don’t appreciate the full scope of his genius.
Kane’s approach to Abe and Ella’s original story seems to involve adding elements (like 6 journalists from the Daily Mail—say what?) to the mix; at this point, we’re really quite surprised that he hasn’t managed to include everyone north of the Thames in his ever-expanding fairy story.
However, there’s a note of encouragement: Kane is planning to ‘break up’ with his unappreciative audience soon. How soon, you ask? We’re not sure, but we really hope he’s serious this time.
Because when it comes to Insane Kane, breaking up won’t be hard to do.
p.s. We are launching a new approach to dealing with complaints to Facebook, as we’d like to get as many false and defamatory Hoaxtead posts removed as possible. If you’d like to help, please use the comments section of this post to provide us with any links you would like to see taken down. We’ll be collecting them and sending them to Facebook’s Safety Team with a cover letter detailing exactly why we’d like to see this material removed. We don’t know how this will be received, but we think it’s worth a shot.
