    Kenneth Tong… Completely a Dick. (Update)

    Well, this is turn up for the books isn’t it? Kenneth Tong has now posted a tweet saying that his managed anorexia campaign was a hoax, well that makes it all better then doesn’t it?

    No, it doesn’t.

    He states his reasons for picking an offensive and sickening topic to promote was to conduct an experiment to see if twitter can be used to garner huge publicity.  It worked but here at Rant Towers we’re still unsure as to whether to believe him or not.

    You have to think that after so much bad publicity, wouldn’t someone post something reversing their actions even if they did still believe it? Well we wouldn’t here but some people might.

    You can read his comments below.

    I think it is time for to come clean. The whole size zero thing is a hoax. It came about after an interesting discussion I had with a friend of mine. The discussion centered round whether it was possible, to go from nowhere to be a globally recognized figure within a week harnessing the power of the internet and specifically Twitter, which I have always maintained is a better medium than national TV. My friend said it wasn’t possible. I said it was. To prove him wrong, I decided as a hoax to promote via Twitter something that was universally appalling, I chose managed anorexia. I would like to make it clear, I chose the subject as a hoax as I knew it’d be appalling to men and women. The campaign has worked; I have been a Trending topic on Twitter for over a week. I am scheduled to appear on TV, the Press and Radio shows, over the course of the next week: Grazia, Telegraph, The Sun, The Sunday Times etc. Now it’s time to come clean and stop the bandwagon. My honest personal opinion on managed anorexia is it is an disgusting and illogical idea. It is a mental illness. It cannot be managed. To all the people I have offended as part of this scientific experiment, I would like to apologize to you and to show my sincerity I will making a sizeable donation to beat: the leading UK charity for people with eating disorders and their families. Furthermore, I have decided to auction my custom Apple iPod Nano watch on Ebay, the proceeds from this will be going to the charity, beat.

    Now if you don’t mind I’ll go back to actually focussing on something important and Mr. Tong you can go and crawl back under which ever rock you came from, now fuck off.
