Who? Drummer for the White Stripes.
Real? No, just a hoax starring a lookalike.
On September 24, 2007, a so-called Meg White sex tape made the rounds of blogs and message boards. The dark, grainy 2½-minute video showed someone who looked like Meg White having sex with some guy on a bed. The consensus was that the tape was probably a fake.
The White Stripes’ management officially denied and denouced the sex tape rumor. “Some people have a very twisted sense of humor and this prank is in particularly bad taste. The tape circulating on the internet as featuring Meg White is fake. It’s definitely not Meg.”
Within a couple days, The Daily Swarm tracked down the source and definitively declared it a fake.
On Monday, September 17, at 6:17 AM, a long-time member of the Hipinion forum community started a thread entitled MEG WHITE SEX TAPE with a simple link to a homemade porn video featuring a female sex partner who bore more than a passing resemblance to a certain rock and roll drummer. A brief 8-hour, 40-post debate ensued over the authenticity of its subject – with many of the same jokes that were soon to be made all over the world – before the thread slipped into the archives.
Until yesterday. You know what happened next.
The original Hipinion poster responded to the rumor breaking wide:
oh shit dudes,
i found this video through random wank mining efforts and put it up here cause i figured you guys would have a laugh. it had nothing to do with meg white when i found it.
Further web sleuthing revealed that the video clip had originally been posted on an amateur porn site called postyourgirls.com on September 12, 2007.
For the record, there is no Meg White sex tape and there never was.
