Leo is busy doing damage control after #DickGate and announcing a shutdown on the live stream and live chat shortly after. He is lying on Twitter and lied to Gawker. Additionally, Perez Hilton is covering the cover-up. TOMO News has spoofed it as well.
Chad agrees. Live streaming is the best.
I love live streaming. The chat is so much fun, way different than just recording! <3

Gawker has been tweeting multiple times. Perhaps mad at being called liars, as are we.
