What a reckless way of dealing with your issues!!! Why would all of these reputable publications post fake news? All the videos circulating with real evidence surely can’t be fake?
Own your actions and stop the violence against your own people! Save your people, not yourselves! https://t.co/h1dRo2h4RR
