Let the Internet Name Your Baby? It’s All a Hoax!

Natasha Hill
Huffington Post

News broke last week that a woman was going to let the Internet name her baby in exchange for $5,000. The company in charge of the naming is a start-up called Belly Ballot, and they’re now coming forward to say the whole thing was a hoax.

Natasha Hill is the actress who was pictured in the article, and now we’re learning that she’s not only an actress, but she’s not even pregnant. Belly Ballot had made claims that 80 women entered the contest to let a worldwide audience name their unborn child, when in fact there wasn’t a single person who entered.

Lacey Moler of Belly Ballot told the Today show, “We came up with the idea for the contest and we knew it would be controversial. But we’re a start-up and we wanted to control the situation… We never thought it would get this big.”

This isn’t the first time that we’ve had our opinions swayed by a hoax. Last April news reports stated that a woman pulled out all of her ex-boyfriend’s teeth while he sat in her dentist chair, and that turned out to be fake. But isn’t everything on the Internet supposed to be true?
