An emotional Manti Te’o wants to thanks fans who is showing support after the release of his Netflix doc.
Earlier this week, Netflix released Untold: The Girlfriend Who Didn’t Exist about Te’o’s 2012 catfishing scandal.
Te’o has gotten plenty of love from football fans on the Internet following the release of the doc.
Manti Te’o Netflix doc is a great example of a person who has every right to be bitter, yet somehow finds solace/purpose in helping others. What society did to this man is not only unfair, but reprehensible. His NFL career was ruined and yet his daily mission is inspiring others!

The Manti Te'o untold story literally made me cry. His entire career snatched away from him because he was loving and cared too much. The world owes him an apology.
