#DelhiRiots | Reality Check | Fake News About The Delhi Riots
So here's the deal - you cannot believe everything you see on the internet! Asiaville is here to bust some of the worst fake news stories we come across.
Throughout the saga and trauma of the Delhi Riots, one thing has been constant: Fake News and rumor mongering.
I personally have been receiving a huge number of WhatsApp forwards about the violence taking place. These come in the form of images with polarising, accusatory captions that pit brother against brother, communities against each other. A lot of these are so heartbreaking because of the hate they create.
But here’s the thing. The majority of this is fake news. This can be proven with a simple, powerful tool - Google image reverse search.
So that’s exactly what we did.
These images are extremely graphic, so trigger warning.
Here's our new show - Reality Check, with Asiaville.
