Trump fans are spreading fake images of Black supporters who don’t exist

A new report by BBC Panorama found that AI-generated images of Black people seemingly endorsing Donald are proliferating online among MAGA supporters. The AI-generated images can look exceptionally real, but they are as phony as a Trump-dollar bill. According to the report, there is “no evidence directly linking these images to Mr. Trump’s campaign,” but the motivation for such imagery is suspicious, to say the least. 

One of the image creators is a conservative radio host in Florida named Mark Kaye, whose team shared on Facebook their fake image of a group of Black women and others with Trump at a holiday party. His account has more than 1 million followers. According to the BBC, Kaye’s image was posted alongside an article about Black voters supporting Trump.
