“I Got Catfished” Troye Sivan pranked by the same fake Greta Thunberg as Prince Harry

On March 26, Troye Sivan shared his hilarious story of being catfished by Russian hackers who also pranked Prince Harry and Bernie Sanders.
In the vlog, Troye Sivan explained that his manager was connected by the Swedish environmental activist Greta Thunberg’s dad who would like to work with Troye on a new project. The 24-year-old singer was so excited and gave his one hundred percent “of course” towards this terrific cooperation. After Troye got the phone number of “Greta”, he messaged her on WhatsApp and said “Hey Greta, it’s Troye Sivan here. Just wanted to say how incredible the work is that you’re doing – I’m so inspired by you. Here to help however I can.” The content of which is now reposted by many on Twitter to poke fun at this funny story.  After few days without any response from “Greta”, Troye’s manager started to feel confused about why Greta’s dad spoke English so badly while they were on the phone, so she went to watch and listen to interviews of him and it turned out that the man she had a phone call with was not Greta’s dad!
After Troye knew the truth, the fake Greta showed up and responded to the message by saying “So, how are you?” which was used by a lot of people yesterday and today making fun of Troye on Twitter and Instagram.
Troye found later that these Russian hackers also got Bernie Sanders and Prince Harry, and they were going around pretending to be Greta Thunberg.
About the whole ridiculous stuff, Troye concluded, “It just completely mortified me and made me want to die, and also made me cry laughing.”
