Zach Braff target of gay hoax hacker
The phony site update, posted around 3:58 a.m. ET and captured by TMZ, read:
"To all my loyal fans, I have been hiding this secret inside me for too long... The human mind can only bare [sic] so much before it explodes in emotions, and well... it is time I let the world know. I am excited and proud to announce that I am an open member of the homosexual community. This is not news to those closest to me, and I honor that they have kept it a secret for such a long time. This doesn't change anything, I am still Zach Braff, and I am the same man I've always been, gay or not. ;) Thank you to all my supporters and look forward to seeing me soon! I couldn't be happier about this announcement. :)"
Neither could we -- except for the fact that, according to Braff, it's totally bogus.
"He was hacked," a rep for Braff tells TMZ. "That site has been down since 2006."
As of this morning, it's been updated with a promo for the production of a Braff-penned play, "All New People."
