We Have All Been Fooled With These 8 Fake Photos Over The Internet

The internet is abound with fake photos, and sometimes real photos with fake histories. So how do you know what is real, and what is just Photoshop shenanigans? Well, we’ve got a group of suspicious photos here that have been circulated time and time again and thanks to a little research here’s the real story behind them.
No, Heath Ledger did not do a kick-flip over Christian Bale

I’ll admit, even this one had me fooled. While Ledger did have a habit of skating around Chicago during the time of shooting, this photo is sadly fake. The original has the actor merely jumping over Bale.
Not a crazy Hillary supporter standing on the US flag

The activist in question is Latausha Nedd and she’s holding a Pan-African flag which someone poorly photoshopped into a Pro-Hillary flag. Unfortunately, that didn’t stop conservatives from running with it…speaking of…
Equally, this is not Frida Kahlo either.

Well not exactly, it’s a composite image created by Robert Toren in 2012 using a model.
This is not Malaysia Airlines flight MH17.

This photo is what comes up when you search MH17 in images, which means the photoshop has overtaken any actual factual photos.
This is not Marie Curie

This is actor Susan Marie Frontczak, who played Curie in a production called Manye. What’s embarrassing is that this photo was used by the country of Togo on a postage stamp, not knowing that it was an actor and not the real heroine.
This is not how they shot the MGM logo

This photo has been going around since Carrie Fisher tweeted it out back in June. It looks like some animal cruelty happening in order to shoot the famous MGM logo. However, this photo manipulation is actually Samson the lion undergoing a CAT scan.
This photo supposedly depicts the actual shooting of the lion for MGM

This is what we used to watch while we were kids
This woman is not saving a magician from a trick gone wrong

What she is doing is attacking a fellow burlesque dancer. Kitty West smashed the glass box containing fellow performer ena the Aqua Tease as she was performing her underwater strip dance. The two were rivals and ena had gotten top billing which threw West into a furious rage. She smashed the tank while ena was inside then once the water had drained attacked the woman by pulling her hair. She was arrested, and the whole debacle ended up being published in Life Magazine.
