“When you tell a lie hundreds of times, it no longer qualifies as a lie,” one person wrote.
“The categorical influencer,” said a second. Unoriginal. Petty and never give credit where credit is due. And, yes, they are going through a lot.”
“When people bluntly lie, it’s time to unforgive them @humansofny,” said a third.

“The audacity,” said a fourth. I’m experiencing secondhand humiliation.”
“Storytelling gone wrong,” another said.
