Jaleel White, Is It Him? Or Isn't It?

Jaleel White, Is It Him? Or isn't It?Jaleel White, Is It Him? Or isn't It?A few months ago one of my dear friends contacted me via private message on Facebook, she was super excited to inform me that Jaleel White had accepted her friend request. I was puzzled, Jaleel White? She proceeded to tell me that he used to play the nerdy character 'Urkel' who was forever in love with Laura Winslow (Kellie Williams) on the hit show Family Matters. I was happy for her, I mean who doesn't remember Urkel!? I decided I would like to add him to my page also, so I sent a request. Lo and Behold! Mr. White accepted my friend request. I also added him on Twitter because I was curious to see what projects Mr. White may have up and coming. The first thing that gave me pause about this Facebook page after a while is that 'Mr. White' was seemingly fundraising for different 'causes' or particular people, dropping names of stars and industry execs alike. Then it seemed that all of Mr. Whites Facebook friends were in some sort of race to see who could get a phone call from him to hear a kind word. Don't get me wrong, I am a fan of parody pages, fake star pages, etc. because you never know what humor or information you may find. However, when that page starts to use someone else's name and star power to rip people off, I must draw the line.

Last night while trolling Facebook for good blog posts I came across this post on Mr. White's (if it is his page), it seems that I am not the only skeptical person that are friends with this particular page.

19 hours agojust to put it out there people say im fake o.k thats no big deal but you dont see what i do for others on a regular basis just because. people want me to call them but in all acuality im breaking my neck for the little peopleple who simply want to hear my voice just because, not to people who wants to see me just because. wtbs im battling a cold but in a hour in a half Rachel Baer you will get a call from me. your strength inspires me to continue on with this thing. i love you as a person i cherish you as a fan. and i know your going to walk out of that hospital and marry your love. trust me he is going to bat for you everyday*******The thought of Mr. White reaching out to fans to brighten their day is great. More stars should do the same, especially for people that are not in the best of their health. A smile can surely go a long way. laughter heals the soul. However, as I pointed out earlier, where is the line drawn when it seems that people could really get scammed in the process, I decided to respectfully call him out. 

Elle PrettyKitty FrazierIt just seems a bit skeptical since i follow Jaleel on Twitter and he doesnt tweet about anything u post here. Most fb and twitter user accounts are usually consistent so can u tweet something and hashtag #PayItForward?

As you can see I had managed to piss this Gail person off. Although my give a f**k cup is clearly empty, I found it laughable that they are defending this person, and if it turns out that this is a fake or parody page people who donated money to these causes will surely care, and rightfully feel scammed. My advice to everyone is this. EVERY star has a platform, and although some interacts with fans, most does not. If you cannot prove the person you are chatting with, sending praises, and money to are who they say they are through VERIFIED Facebook and Twitter accounts, donate to a real proven cause. Do some REAL research, or you may be taken for a ride that has your ass hurting in the end.
