FACT CHECK: Photo of US VP Kamala Harris with sex offender Jeffrey Epstein is morphed

HYDERABAD: An image of the US Vice President Kamala Harris along with convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein is viral on social media. An Instagram post that carried the image with the caption 'Make it famous' received over 1000 likes.


FACT CHECK:

The image is morphed.

NewsMeter performed a reverse image search and found the original photo of Harris on Getty Images. The picture shows Kamala Harris and her husband Douglas Emhoff at the Broad Museum Black Tie Inaugural Dinner at the Broad on September 17, 2015, in Los Angeles, California. The picture is credited to Jerod Harris from Getty Images.

NewsMeter performed another reverse image search and found the image of Jeffery Epstein on Associated Press. It is from a mug shot that was shared by the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Department from July 2006. Two images from different occasions were morphed together to share a false claim.




Evidently, it is clear that the viral image is morphed.
