You want to talk multiple universes?
I am up for that. You want to do it based on a defunct and erroneous tale, from a defunct and erroneous man? Not so much.
In 2009, a report by John Hughston, who runs the Hoax Hunter website, named Larry Haber, a Florida entertainment lawyer, and John Rick Haber, his computer scientist brother, as the men behind John Titor. Larry Haber is the CEO of the John Titor Foundation, and an IP address connected with Titor points to the same town in which he registered it. A private detective hired by an Italian TV company concluded that John Rick, with his presumed computer knowledge, was the culprit. And Titor's name had actually been first used in 1998, with a different set of predictions (including chaos caused by the Y2K bug). Larry apparently claims to be the lawyer for John Titor's mother.

I recognized it was a hoax from their direct supposed photographic evidence. It's easy to tag a hoax when they make scientific mistakes.
There was a photograph which supposedly showed a 'laser beam' bending because of the mini black hole in the supposed containment machine sitting in the seat of a car.
This showed just a curved red beam (which I think was a plastic internally lit fiber cable which is a common commercial item)---as a naive observer would expect from hearing that phrase. The problem was that the background was clear and unmolested. Actual gravitational lensing would affect all of space and everything would look very weird and distorted. It would take far more expert effort to simulate actual gravitational lensing that few could do---e.g. the effects crew of the Interstellar film who engaged actual gravitation modelers.
