One of my favorite trolling moments happened after I made a Facebook page called “Joel Osteen Ministries” and used it to respond to one of the real Joel Osteen fans on his actual Facebook page.
A lot of people fell for it.
News about the post eventually made its way onto Snopes, The Houston Chronicle, and triggered responses from the real Joel Osteen Ministries twitter account, and Joel Osteen’s church, Lakewood Church.
This was my second time getting news for trolling Joel Osteen. The first time, a spokesman for Lakewood Church made a statement and it was reported in the Houston Chronicle.
The “Joel Oldsteen” trolling even made Fox News and The Christian Post, who both called me “Bill Palmer.”
