I made a Facebook page called “Joel Osteen Ministries” and used it to respond to one of the real Joel Osteen fans on his actual Facebook page.
A lot of people fell for it.
News about the post eventually made its way to Snopes, and The Houston Chronicle. And it triggered responses from the real Joel Osteen Ministries twitter account, and Joel Osteen’s church, Lakewood Church.
This was the second time trolling Joel Osteen. The first time, a spokesman for Lakewood Church made a statement and it was reported in the Houston Chronicle.
The “Joel Oldsteen” trolling was covered in an online story by Fox News, who referred to me as “Bill Palmer.”
