Fake “Jake Gyllenhaal” Twitter Account Endorses Mitt Romney, Dupes Outlets

Late Monday, major outlets picked up on Twitter messages, purportedly from the actor, that seemed to support Romney’s candidacy over President Obama.
“If Obama Has All These Answers Of How To Save Our Country, Why Hasnt He Implemented These In The Last Four Years,” read the first “Gyllenhaal” tweet from the @Jake_Gyllenhaal account.
A second tweet read, “As A Democrat, I’ll say it now, I endorse Mitt Romney For President Of The United States #MyVoteIsMade.”
Screen shot below.
One tiny problem: That is not Jake Gyllenhaal’s actual Twitter account.
It’s a fake.
In fact, @Jake_Gyllenhaal even identifies itself as a “fansite.”
