Marvel actor Mark Ruffalo, known for his role as the Hulk in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, recently found himself at the center of controversy after sharing a post accusing former President Donald Trump of traveling to Epstein island with underage girls.
This post, however, was later revealed to be based on AI-generated images, leading to significant criticism of Ruffalo for spreading unverified information.
The original post claimed that Trump was seen in photos with different groups of young girls, none of whom were his relatives.
The post, which quickly gained traction online, was designed to paint a damning picture of the former president. Ruffalo, amplifying the message, expressed his disgust and called out MAGA supporters for allegedly turning a blind eye to Trump’s supposed actions.
“Gross. #MAGA wants to paint everyone on those flights as pedophiles except the one guy who smiles in a group of young girls all headed to Epstein’s ‘Fantasy Island’ with him. My bet is there are some decent republicans left in America that may think this is going too far,” Ruffalo opined.
However, the images did not in fact depict what they claimed, as they were generated by AI and not in fact real images of former President Trump. X fact-checked the tweet with an article from Lead Stories, which debunked the authenticity of the images. The article clarified that the photos were digitally created and did not depict real events or people.
