This is an altered photograph of protesters in Chicago in 2016, Snopes reports.
Although the police said that they had trouble reading the suspect's fingerprints, the reports that he intentionally mutilated his fingers are false, police say.
An Australian politician really was looking at a picture of Borat in his mankini. He said that he was sent a photo by a friend who said, "This is how you will look at the beach." Very nice.
This claim circulated on Facebook and Twitter, but Harley-Davidson's CEO never put out such a statement, Snopes reports.
The article was originally published by a website that calls itself "fauxtire," Lead Stories reports.
