We are in Wakanda paradise right now and racist wypipo can’t deal.
That’s why there have been a slew of fake stories floating around on the Internet claiming that black moviegoers are violently assaulting white people trying to watch “Black Panther.”
Not only is it fake news, but these trolls are so stupid that the images they’re using to back up their claims are so easy to identify as lifted from other stories. It’s actually making a mockery of true instances of assault, like one that happened to Colbie Holderness, who was allegedly punched in the face by former top White House staffer Rob Porter.
That's right, they used a picture of a woman who was assaulted by a man Donald Trump said "did a good job" during his short stint in the White House.
See some more instances of these false and destructive stories below.
Prior memes or popular posts also pop up. This fake Black Panther tweet used a photo of Walking Dead's Steven Yeun posted by makeup artist Greg Nicotero on Instagram: https://t.co/wPcGsnphPC— NowThis Newsroom (@newsroom) February 16, 2018

With videos, you can’t reverse image search. However you can screengrab and search that, but with some of these fake Black Panther tweets it was even easier than that. pic.twitter.com/hRhyKwhVv3— NowThis Newsroom (@newsroom) February 16, 2018
