Corey Worthington Fight Staged?

I had my suspicions that the Corey Delaney Worthington fight was staged and it appears I may have been correct:

Sources told The Daily Telegraph Corey could face charges of affray and public mischief over the incident. 

"If it’s a hoax and it causes someone else to believe it’s real and report it we could look at someone being charged,” a Victorian police officer said.

Police were planning to interview Corey today, while officers would also want to speak with the teenager, who shot the video on a mobile phone.

A witness to the fight said Corey was only targeted for his so-called fame. "He thinks he’s all that, he’s famous now," he said.

Since gaining worldwide infamy, Corey’s bad attitude has inspired the internet game "Slap Corey", which has now been played more than 850,000 times.

Corey has since taken representation with celebrity agent Max Markson, and is reportedly preparing a world tour promoting and DJ-ing at parties. [The Daily Telegraph]

Corey Worthington is a total media creation and he is just feeding them exactly what they want in order to increase his notariety to launch his future party career.  I wouldn’t be surprised if there are more Corey Worthington hoaxes in the future as well.
