False Claim of Barack Obama as Gay Serial Killer Suspect Circulates on Social Media
The video description, dated September 6, 2023, asserts: “Barack Obama’s Ex-Boyfriend Admits He Was ‘Prime Suspect’ in Gay Serial Killer Case| CNN BREAKING NEWS.”
In a recent Facebook post, a sensational claim has been circulating, suggesting that CNN reported former President Barack Obama’s alleged involvement as a gay serial killer
However, it is crucial to note that this post has been flagged by Meta, the parent company of Facebook and Instagram, as part of their ongoing efforts to combat false news and misinformation on their platforms.
Upon closer inspection, it becomes evident that the video itself makes no mention of CNN about the claims. A spokesperson from the network clarified that they have not reported any such allegations. Our research corroborates this, as no evidence supporting the assertions made in the post was found on CNN’s official website.
The video in question goes on to present baseless allegations asserting that Barack Obama was involved in the murder of a choir director.
The claim that CNN reported Obama as a suspect in a series of gay serial killers lacks credible evidence.
However, when we sought out credible news sources or any form of substantial evidence linking Obama to a series of gay serial killers, we came up empty-handed. Given the absence of any credible sources or evidence substantiating the claim that CNN reported Obama as a suspect in a series of gay serial killers, we can confidently assert that this assertion is entirely without merit. As a result, we rate these claims as “Pants on Fire!”.
