Conan Apologizes For Reading Tweets From Levi Johnston Impostor

On Wednesday night, Conan O'Brien brought out William Shatner to read some Twitter messages from Levi Johnston, the 19-year-old father of Sarah Palin's grandson.

It was an amusing bit with gems like "Maybe I'm a genius and not even know it", "Anybody know where I can get some good weed?", "Is it true that fat kids never get kidnapped?" and "You know you're a celebrity when strangers want to see your penis."

But as it turned out, the messages weren't from Levi Johnston at all and actually an impostor. Who knew there were people who wanted to be Levi?

"We are demanding a retraction," said Johnston's manager Tank Jones in a release. "For a major network to come on TV and report something without fact checking, wow. You can say what you want to say, but don't lie. He never had a Twitter account."

So Conan apologized for reading counterfeit messages on Thursday night and brought back Shatner to make amends and this time read some real quotes from Levi:

Here's the original with much funnier, albeit fake messages, from Wednesday:

Meanwhile, the New York Post is reporting that Levi Johnston is "getting cold feet" about his upcoming nude Playgirl appearance because he is "worried about how his manhood may look."
