Are The Ghost Hunters All TAPSed out?
T.A.P.S., the acronymic stars of SyFy's "Ghost Hunters" series, are once again involved in claims of hoaxing evidence. The video above is only the most recent example, but a jacket-tugging incident about a year ago spawned similar accusations. In fact, these stories seemingly have been cropping up for some years now. When the team investigated Oklahoma's Stone Lion Inn, some peripheral witnesses came back with claims that the production staff used black thread in order to remotely control the movement of objects. Thusfar, the stalwart cast and crew have weathered these controversies and continued to put on a successful show. One wonders, however, with the apparent increase in suspected hoaxes and ever-revolving door of celebrity guest stars, if TAPS isn't tapped out. Or, in industry parlance, have they "jumped the shark"?
