Journalist Claims Anne Hathaway Didn’t Shake His Hand Because of Ebola

An Argentinian journalist tweeted (and subsequently deleted) that Anne Hathaway didn’t shake his hand because of something to do with Ebola. It’s unclear from the tweets whether he meant Hathaway personally said so or if someone intervened on her behalf, but in either case it’s a pretty serious charge.

Here’s the tweets as Alexis Puig sent them out:

And here’s what they roughly translate to:

Anne Hathaway didn’t shake my hand “for fear of Ebola” #iamajournalistinthethirdworld

Christopher Nolan, Matthew McConaughey and Jessica Chastain were great in interviews (and none refused my hand) Take that, Anne!

Hathaway’s spokesman has, of course, denied his claims as complete “nonsense,” and said, “She wasn’t shaking anyone’s hands because she was coming down with a cold and didn’t want to get anyone sick.”
