Yesterday afternoon, an unidentified 20-year-old Virginia man practically brought New York City to a damn standstill by scaling the 58-story Trump Tower building on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan using little more than suction cups. Police finally apprehended the man on the 21st floor just after 6:30 p.m. by knocking out a window pane and dragging him inside, after an over two hour long standoff. We still don’t know the identity or motive of the climber. But as we’re now left with more questions than answers, one thing we do unequivocally know for sure is that it was not Supernatural star Jared Padalecki.
On Wednesday evening, Padalecki himself took to Facebook and Twitter to reassure fans that no, he was not climbing the Trump Tower, after apparently having received at least a few concerned inquiries.
