When it's not harrassing people or circulating private photos of naked celebs, social media can serve as a force for good. When Adam's sizeable following saw his post, thousands of people called the police force local to Adam and the hashtag #FindAdamHoover began trending on Twitter.
Within hours, the car was found abandoned, and the police discovered Adam as he left a nearby home. He was unharmed. Needless to say, Twitter gave itself a well-deserved pat on the back.
Every day, unspeakable crimes are inflicted upon people purely because of their sexual orientation. Adam was probably not one of these people. Investigating officers believe Adam faked his own kidnapping, in what may develop into one of the most bizarre stories of the year.
It's hard to think why Adam would pull a stunt of this magnitude. Martyrs can catalyse a cause, but fraudulence can kill it just as quickly. We all wanted to avenge the little kids negated by Joseph Kony, but immediately backed away when we learned it was overblown bullshit.
This seems like a similar caper, and in an age when quantity is much more important that quality, maybe Adam thought it would help his cause even if he didn't pull it off. After all, he's still trending. No matter what happens though, you know all the homophobes are going to point to this when people ask why gay marriage shouldn't be legal. Now that is a downer!
