Except, dozens of people failed to consider the untrustworthy nature of the World Wide Web when they retweeted a satirical tweet originally posted by someone who claims to be an alien.
Here's what happened.
Twitter user jomny sun posted a photoshopped screenshot of Will Smith's and Jada Pinkett Smith's Google bios, altering them so their first and middle names sounded like their kids' names.
Will Smith's name was changed to Willard Oliver Smith while Jada's was changed to Jada Naomi Pinkett Smith.
While it's true Willow's and Jaden Smith's names do come from their parents' first names, the middle names made up by a random Twitter user were just that — made up.
Apparently, approximately 15,000 people failed to double check, though, and either retweeted the tweet or tweeted about how, duh, they already knew Willard Oliver is Will Smith's real name, and Jada Naomi is Jada's real name.
In the process, they made themselves look like complete idiots.
Jason Martinez asked, “Did you seriously just realize this?”
Many said they knew this fact for a while.
This isn't new!
Twitter user Maya Leigh was apparently one of the only ones smart enough to double check, learning the post was, in fact, completely made up.*
*Except the part about Will's real name being Willard. Sadly, that was real.
