(National Sentinel)Â Virtually Unreal:Â The largest, most-followed “Black Lives Matter” page on Facebook turns out to be fake news.
As reported byÂ The Washington Times, investigators have discovered that the page was actually created by a white Australian.
Citing â€œa review of the page and associated accounts and websites,â€ CNN reported Monday that the page titled ‘Black Lives Matter’ â€œwas a scam with ties to a middle-aged white man in Australia.â€
The official Black Lives Matter page has less than 330,000 â€œLikesâ€ and â€œFollows.â€ CNNÂ reported thatÂ the Australian page had more than twice that many.
By the time the news network reported the scam, Facebook had suspended the page,Â but only because, CNN claimed, â€œit had suspended a user account that administrated the page.â€
The Times noted that the page was used to raise at least $100,000, most of which was transferred to accounts in Australia.
