Hoaxes

Obama holding a gun in a black panther uniform (Hoax)

There is a doctored image of Obama holding a gun in a black panther uniform floating around the internet. The image is usually published in Facebook posts by people who oppose the President of the United States. The image appears to be Barack Obama sitting on the ground and pointing a handgun while dressed in a Black Panther uniform.

The image of Barack Obama holding a gun is not real. It is a photo-shopped image of 2 images that have been cropped to a new size and layered. The original image is an image of 2 people in Black Panther uniforms. An image of President Obama’s face was then layered over the original image.

At this time, it appears that this is only a hoax. There is no path to where this image comes from, who edited the image, why they edited the image, or how this hoax actually got started; However, the hoax appears to be spread unknowingly by people who actually believe the image is real.
