Reports have surfaced this week that the high-profile celebrity Mark Ruffalo has been deemed a possible terror threat. Here to settle the rumors and much asked question: Is Mark Ruffalo a threat to national security?
This rumor is false! It was bound to happen soon, seeing as how the fabricated stories went so far as to say that his name was added to a terror watch list compiled by, of all places, the Pennsylvania Office of Homeland Security. “His name is not in any of our bulletins,” Maria A. Smith, the spokeswoman for the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency, told the Philadelphia Inquirer. “There is no list, we never even had a list.”
“It’s pretty f–king funny,” Ruffalo himself stated of the rumor in an interview with GQ.
So…just what sparked this rumor? It all began when the actor voiced concerns and took part in protests over the dangers of natural gas drilling in support of his new documentary, Gasland.
