Hack's awful Ryan Tubridy hit by trolls who edit Wikipedia page to say he presents 'live sex shows' on RTE

The presenter has previously taken on online trolls who targeted guests on the Late Late Show


RTE has said they could not comment after trolls edited presenter Ryan Tubridy’s Wikipedia page. 

The Late Late Show presenter was targeted by hoaxers who added their own choice “facts' on Ryan’s profile.

Claiming that his nickname was horny b****x, they described him as “an Irish broadcaster, a presenter of live sex shows on radio and television in Ireland.”

Ryan has previously taken on online trolls who targeted guests on the Late Late Show.

In March 2020 he stuck up for actor Barry Keoghan following his appearance on the show that month.

The Dublin actor was appearing on the show to talk about his new film Calm With Horses.

However, during his appearance, some viewers took to Twitter to troll the 27-year-old.

Speaking on his RTE Radio One show, Ryan Tubridy hit back at those who made nasty comments about the talented actor and said that they need to think about the consequences that their words may have.

‘Unkind people were out and about on Friday night when we had Barry Keoghan and Niamh Algar [on the Late Late Show],’ Ryan explained.

‘From the moment I met [Barry], I’ve become completely enamoured by him because he’s one of life’s good people. He’s come through a rough run of things in his life but came out the other side with extraordinary class and star quality.

‘He has a strange way about him when he comes on the TV because he is nervous and he has this way that’s just a little different.

‘He came on, did the interview and he was just magnificent. The mean people, I don’t know if you are one of those people who make comments online about people like Barry or whatever, just know this — you think you’re going to be smart and you think you might be funny, but you’re not.

‘You’re actually being cruel and you’re being nasty, and you’re being reductive and you’re being everything we shouldn’t be as human beings. "
