'Cubicle Guy' Pops Up: Weiner News Conference Made Him A Star : The Two-WayWho was that white-haired guy who kept peering over the former congressman's shoulder Tuesday? He became a social media star known as "cubicle guy." Well, it was a New York City radio reporter who says that "cubicle guy had no idea that he was cubicle guy."
As New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner was admitting Tuesday that he continued to "sext" after his 2011 resignation from Congress, social media sites were abuzz about the "cubicle guy" whose head kept popping up behind the Democratic politician.
"Who is the white haired guy in the background acting like the neighbor from Home Improvement peeking over the cubicle? lol," "Miss B" wondered on Twitter.
"Cubicle guy had no idea that he was cubicle guy. Cubicle Guy was just there. He was taking notes. He was standing behind Anthony Weiner, because that was the only available spot to him. Because Cubicle Guy was late getting to the news conference — not, as it turned out, as late as Anthony Weiner. ... That was the only place I could stand."
