    Are White People Being Assaulted at Showings of 'Black Panther'?

    Online trolls tried to push claims of violence, but they were quickly foiled by others on social media.









    CLAIM

    White people have been attacked by black filmgoers at showings of "Black Panther."

    RATING

    FALSE

    ORIGIN

    As the Marvel Entertainment film Black Panther opened in the U.S. in February 2018, some social media users attempted to put a damper on the occasion by posting fake accounts of anti-white attacks only to be foiled by other users’ photo-sleuthing skills.


    One photo posted on Twitter reportedly generated around 400 retweets before being debunked. The image showed a towel soaked in blood over a sink alongside the caption:
    Was at the #blackpanther premiere but a group of black youths said this movie wasnt for me. I am white. They then proceeded to assault me. Im heading to the ER now.
    But other users quickly noted that the picture was actually posted on the photo-sharing platform Flickr in 2009.
    Twitter suspended the account behind that fake post, as well as the one that attempted to pass off a picture of a 19-year-old Swedish woman’s bloodied face. She was actually attacked at a bar in Malmo, despite false claims the photo was taken after an “assault” connected to the film, which features a nearly all-black cast:

    Another user attempted to pass himself off as 23-year-old Michael Voller, who was hit in the face in London in May 2017 in an attack that was reportedly precipitated by anger over the results of a FA Cup soccer semifinal match:

    There is no indication that these posts are coordinated, but another social media user passing themselves off as the victim of an assault — this one using a photo taken from a British makeup artist’s porfolio — showed off their “work” on a message board in the web site 4chan:

    Despite these types of smear attempts, reports estimated that Black Panther was on track to earn between $200 million and $205 million at the box office for its opening weekend.

    The alt-right trolls are at it again with their lies and their shit-stirring. Trump's America.

    I guess this is the follow up to their failed attempts to bomb the film's ratings on sites like Rotten Tomatoes.

    I saw one where they used the black eye photo of Porter's ex wife.
