Another major star just got some serious egg on her face.
After Jennifer Lopez tweeted out a picture of a child crying, allegedly separated from her parents by the Trump zero-tolerance policy, it was found out the image was actually from 2014.
Jennifer Lopez, like many of her fellow Hollywood liberals, decided to fire off an attack to go after Trump and his administration’s immigration policy.
Lopez made a picture go viral, claiming it was a child that had been taken away from her parents.
Reading the news about the separation of children from their families, I can’t help but think about my own children. I cannot fathom a world where they would be ripped from my arms, taken to a place no better than a prison far from home. I feel we will never forget this moment in time. Bearing witness to these atrocities and that’s what they are, I can say for sure, remaining silent is not an option. As a Latino, and as you know very well, a proud Bronx born Puerto Rican American, we and the people of all different races, roots, and culture have enriched this country. But the recent rhetoric and constant dismissal of what we bring to the table has to stop. This is about basic human rights and decency. If you care about children, have concern for the lack of transparency about this disastrous display, in full view to the world in general, I encourage you first to get caught up on the situation. Next, call your congressperson and demand an answer, but I also want you to remain hopeful—hold fast to hope, faith and Love. We first need to admit we have a problem before we can heal it. We cannot focus on the evil, we must push towards unity and get to a healing place. ITS ALL IN OUR HANDS. Supporting one another in these troubled times, we can remain on the right side of history: the side where children are safe and in their parents arms. Act now, call now, speak now, LOVE now. #familiesbelongtogether #lovenothate
Anyone that saw the picture could not help but have their heart ripped out.
Unfortunately, at least for Lopez, people researched the photo and found out it was actually from a 2014 story.
Tomi Lahren, a millennial pundit absolutely despised by the left, called her out with this tweet…
Hey Jennifer Lopez, this photo is from Mosul, Iraq in 2014 fleeing from ISIS (the terrorist organization Obama couldn’t defeat). Does it bother you at all to spread fake news? You have millions of followers you are full-on lying to. Wow. pic.twitter.com/P60Z1RrvJN

So far, nobody had heard anything from Lopez about spreading fake news, and it is unlikely we ever will.
Getting Away With It
Quite frankly, there is no need for the media or people like Lopez to retract their stories.
The fact is nobody ever calls them out on it.
CNN has been caught publishing fake news on several occasions, and they continue to do it.
Fox News mistakenly published a picture of a Philadelphia Eagle kneeling and the network was lambasted for a week.
Lopez, CNN… nothing ever seems to happen to the left side of the aisle when they either knowingly or mistakenly publish blatantly fake news.
Once again, the double standard for liberals and conservatives has been brutally proven.
