ABC Affiliate Tries to Pass off Press Release for Drag Prostitute ‘Catholic Priest’ as Real News

A press release published by an ABC news affiliate in Nebraska appears to be a sneaky attempt to smear the Catholic Church. Or, in other words, it’s #FakeNews. The station published an announcement on its website that claims a “Catholic priest” is an out and proud drag performer who made a video showing him prostituting himself on the streets.

“Secretly wearing sexy lingerie underneath his sacred cassock during the day, Father Anthony Capretta (aka Vincent Capretta) is a proud practicing Catholic priest,” says the press release on KLKN-TV’s website.
