fake news

A story making the rounds on social media about a white man asking his black friend to impregnate his wife is a hoax.

The story claims a white man asked his black friend to impregnate his wife in order to help fight white privilege.

Hoax News says the story originated on fake news site The World News Daily.

via Hoax News -- The news was supposedly reported on by KATU ABC 2 but a search for Peyton Wesley or Tyrone DeAndre on their website reveals exactly zero relevant results (the Tyrone DeAndre search returns one result, an article mentioning a "Javon Tyrone Johnson" and a "Royal Deandre Allen" who have nothing to do with this story.

The photo used with the story is actually from a 2013 news story about an African-American soldier whose estranged wife gave away their newborn baby for adoption while he was away for work. The baby was adopted by a (white) couple and only after a long court case the little girl was returned to her own father.

The photo of "cement manufacturer worker Tyrone DeAndre" is actually a screenshot from an interview with activist Brandon Frame:

    How do you fall for bullish if the source is HOAX News??

  • imright

    well duh !! ?

    The original source is World News Daily. HOAX NEWS is the new SNOPES, because the couple who owned Snopes got divorced and the husband is accused of infidelity and fraud and it's a mess.

  • the conscious one

    Anyone that believes having a bi-racial baby fights "white privilege" is a damn fool anyways.

  • Yardgirl

    Took a break from social media while on vacation so I did not hear this 'ish! It sounded too stoopid to be real anyway, TUH!

  • BishesDntGtIt

    You are going to enjoy. I'm going again to the Dec.22 show in Baltimore

  • MookieFly

    Oh I see. Thanks for the clarification Auntie

  • stav

    Of course this is a blatant lie, how would having a black/biracial child as a white couple fight white priviledge? It never amazes me how stupid and ignorant people can be, and the fact that anyone thought this made sense or was true, shows there is too much stupidity in the world!

    Yeah wouldn't work. White people don't see biracial people as "white".

  • ChynasHairline

    Exactly..baby doesn't have an ounce of white in her, so why was it believable in the first place.

  • BishesDntGtIt

    She was a little nervous at first for the show in Richmond but after a few songs she got her life. I enjoyed her performance
