The "Truth about..." fad (not to be confused with "The Un-Funny Truth") uses a short movie to display 1-3 facts about various people. The fad started on January 31 with the site "The Actual Truth About Brian Peppers (sad story)".
According to the site, the following 3 facts were pointed out.
- He lives in a nursing home
- He is on a wheelchair and can not walk
- His only charges were that of groping a nurse.
After the site's launch, there was controversy. Many people felt sorry for Brian and deleted their sites. Others decided that they would use the new information for their own fads (especially the fact about Brian Peppers riding a wheelchair).
While the first 2 facts were true, the third fact was proven to be false as the Ohio state records showed that Brian Peppers did molest a young girl, making him a sexual predator. A few other though still believe that Peppers also groped a nurse as well.
grimaf's site led to another fad involving a letter by Allen Peppers (see Brian Peppers).
As a fad, sites will mimic the original gif used in the "Truth about Brian Peppers" site, listing 3 facts and a message at the end saying "Please, leave him/her alone."
The song choice for the fad was "Forever Rachel" from the RPG game "Final Fantasy VI". The song was included on Volume 11 of the YTMND Soundtrack, almost half-a-year after it's original use.
