The Internet Is Going Wild For Glen Powell's Cannibal Story

Glen Powell was on the Therapuss Podcast, and he told a truly insane story about his sister's friend almost getting eaten by a cannibal.

Here it is:

"You want to hear a crazy story? My little sister was friends with a girl who went on a date with a guy. They're hanging out, and he's super charming."

"They have a great night, and she goes back to his apartment that night and he's like, 'Hey, can I give you a massage?' As she got back to his apartment, she started getting weird vibes. Something feels off."

"So, he starts massaging her shoulders. Everything just feels odd. She's like, 'I gotta get out of here.' It's a little weird, he's like, 'Please don't leave.' She leaves."

"Her skin starts itching like crazy the next day. She goes to the doctor, and he does a test on her skin. It turns out it's a black market lotion that breaks down skin for human consumption."

"This man was rubbing lotion on her body to eat her. The doctor is like you have to give me this person's address and you should call the police. They go to this guy's house, and he had several bodies in the house."

The story has obviously left people feeling extremely freaked out.

Two tweets expressing strong emotions. One from @DEEW4N4 saying "oh my fucking god," and another from @drivcmycar saying "WHAT THE FUCK."

"Absolutely nothing could've ever prepared for me for how this story ends," one person said.

Tweet from @whyrev: "Absolutely nothing could’ve ever prepared me for how this story ends."

"I wouldn't have guessed where this was going in a million tries," another person said.

Tweet from Vic Damone Jr (@wholesomefoxx) saying, "I wouldn’t have guessed where this was going in a million tries."

The only problem is that this story is a HUGE urban legend.

I was told the same story, except it took place in Vegas and involved a hotel room.

According to trusty Snopes, the story is a big fat false.

So, Glen, I'm sorry to say, but this one isn't real, sweetie <3
