Pissed-off fans chimed in with tidbits about him, eventually revealing the dude’s cell phone number and work address. Whether or not this guy was actually at fault or somehow got mixed up in a larger scam, it became a rare moment of power-to-the-people camaraderie among a group best known for tearing one another apart with oh-so-witty commentary.
