Vivian Flores Missing
The Lakers podcaster Vivian Flores reportedly “went missing” on Monday.
Josh Toussaint — her worried podcast co-host — who first tweeted asking help to find her breathed easy and broke the news of her being “safe and alive”. The tweet posted by him that first sparked worry read: “Hey Lakers family, – Vivian Flores (@Butterfly_424) is missing – 5’5” – May or may not be wearing a wig bc she’s going through leukemia treatment – From Santa Monica – DM me if you have a lead or may see her – Love you all and stay safe.”
What followed was a string of theories that insinuated that she was a catfish.
Vivian Flores Twitter
A few social media users claimed it was a man who was running Vivian’s Twitter account, while others pointed out that her voice doesn’t match with her face. Many social media users also said that her photos were bad photoshops of the Lakers games.
“Y’all be on here, hearing the side of the story of one guy and then automatically assume he is right about everything. I have people on here that can verify who I am. I don’t need to prove anything to anyone. As for me going missing, yes it happened. I passed out from my treatment,” @Butterfly_424 tweeted.
Another tweet said, “Now let’s talk about people assuming that @josh2saint runs this account, are y’all that stupid to think a guy gonna talk like a girl on a podcast. Lmaooo come one now,” and a third read, “So Kingsley wants to have his say and I shouldn’t have mine, y’all want to assume everything he said is true go on but I promise on God if I have to talk about shit. People gonna listen too.”
Vivian Flores Update
In a series of tweets, Vivian defended herself saying some people can “verify” who she is and that she doesn’t need to prove anything to anyone. “As for me going missing, yes it happened. I passed out from my treatment.” According to tweets, Vivian is being treated for leukemia and undergoes regular chemotherapy sessions.
Vivian Flores Found
Meanwhile, Josh Toussaint realized he was wrong and wrote: “Still haven’t gotten a goddamn explanation. Thought I trusted someone and learned my lesson. Tried to help a friend I thought was in peril. I was duped like yall and feel bad I was a pawn. Such garbage.”
“Logging off for awhile. Stay safe out there. You never know.”
Nonetheless, many slammed and quizzed why he — in the first place — posted that she had been found.
“Vivian(popular Lakers fan) goes ‘missing’ for a few hours ‘Found’ Today People start to question if this was real or fake Some notices her photos being fake Gets outted as fake and a catfish KD hops in and speaks to some fans…Apparently “Vivian” is a dude running an account,” another wrote.
“From what I gather he used to “e-date” that Vivian girl but she would never accept Facetimes so that’s when he started to realize what was up I’m still sorta confused if she actually is a catfish or just photoshops her pics,” a user expressed.
