CosmoGIRL! Apologizes for ‘Untrue’ story about Vanessa Hudgens getting Arrested!

9 Mar

It looks like CosmoGIRL! must have received a boatload of e-mails over their first publishing an unconfirmed story about High School Musical star Vanessa Hudgens being arrested for underage drinking and then scrubbing the evidence from the website.  You can read all about the original situation with our call to contact the editor-in-chief here.

The website has now apologized for the story, calling it an “unsubstantiated rumor that has now been proven untrue.”

First, we DID NOT report that she was arrested; we stated that another site was reporting she had been. We want to apologize to you our readers and to Vanessa for not further stating that it was still unconfirmed. We pulled that story because the source turned out to not be credible.
Sorry for any misunderstanding,
CosmoGIRL!

However, CosmoGIRL! claimed that their original story only contained one sentence about the situation, and that’s simply not the case.  From CosmoGIRL!

“Here’s what we posted: “It might be hard to believe, but Vanessa Hudgens was arrested for underage drinking, according to BackSeatCuddler.com.”

However, that’s the first sentence of what the website posted.  The full article read:

It might be hard to believe, but Vanessa Hudgens was arrested for underage drinking, according to Back Seat Cuddler. The Disney starlet was hanging out at a Hollywood club when an undercover cop entered and began a random search for minors who were drinking. Even Vanessa’s mom called her daughter’s actions “stupid.” I just hope Vanessa doesn’t end up going down the same road as some other Hollywood starlets. Get it together, girl!

Check out a screencap of the website that proves they’re not being entirely honest about what was originally posted. See for yourself here.

However, at least they’ve posted a public apology, and we commend them for getting that part (mostly) right.
