Wake Forest Kiss Rejecter Guy Sets The Record Straight

As the anointed pop culture guy here at OutKick, I must have zero fear to dabble in all sorts of nonsense content that results in “WHO CARES?” or, “NOBODY CARES” arrows being launched at me from all different directions. But, it’s a job and Clay Travis pays me to do it and I have to walk around with balls of steel.

That means I’m 100% blogging about the Wake Forest fan who was caught on camera during Saturday’s game against Duke refusing to kiss his girlfriend at a football game. That’s content gold these days, especially on Facebook where this type of content can set off comment wars for days. This is cuffing season. Emotions are high.

Now, let’s did into this one.

Wake Forest Dikembe Mutumbo kiss rejecter guy explains himself:

(via Reddit)

Basically, I’ve been talking to this girl for a while and we just started dating about a week ago. I tell her she should come to the Wake game since we are undefeated and will probably win. She says yes. We go with a group of friends, and we are having a great time. Throughout the game we are flirting, hugging, kissing a little bit, etc. We also do this thing where one of us leans in for a kiss, and the other person leans away, which is an inside joke between the two of us. So, we do our little inside joke thing, and unbeknownst to us, we are being recorded.

After the game, I find I’m on the wake forest old row Instagram page, and within the hour I’m on the official old row page. Then, I’m on TikTok, Twitter, and apparently Reddit too.

Just to clarify a few things:

  1. She did not get rejected, we were just playing around

  2. We did not know we were being recorded

  3. If you want proof, check our TikTok accounts (hhhhggggllll and sandx.lop)

  4. It was also her first (maybe last?) college football game

Anyway, the internet is full of horrible people and I haven’t done any work this weekend, so I’m gonna go do that now. Peace

TL;DR I didn’t kiss a girl at a football game and now I’m paying the price.

edit: I’m using a throwaway so people don’t read my post history, not to hide my identity, for all those asking.

Hell yeah, Kiss Rejecter Guy! You tell ’em!

All I could think of while reading this explanation is how he says the whole non-kiss saga prevented him from getting work done this weekend. Uh, why? And some people out there wonder why we have a worker shortage. A shortage of workers who can concentrate long enough to complete a Jersey Mike’s order. A shortage of workers who can put a package on a Fed Ex delivery truck.

They’re busy worrying about what people on Instagram are saying about a non-kiss!

Here’s some grownup Internet advice from someone who has done this job for 13-years:

1. Turn off your phone

2. Wait 36 hours and your 15 minutes will be up; you’re a Wake Forest fan, this shall pass

3. Don’t give the story legs unless you want to extend that 15 minutes of fame

4. Stop playing the victim

There you have it. PR 101 for the Internet age if a camera ever catches you refusing to kiss your girlfriend at a Wake game.

My job is done here.
