Investigation

Starting our investigation, we first searched for the viral image using Google reverse image. We found this picture uploaded on a verified Instagram handle named ‘dudewithsign’ on November 25, 2019. But in this picture, the color of the person’s t-shirt was not red, and also something else was written on the placard. On the placard in this photo was written “stop using group pics for your dating profile.”

On investigating Instagram handle dudewithsign, we found out that the person appearing in this picture and running this account is Seth Phillips. We found many news reports about Seth Phillips.

We searched the entire Instagram handle of dudewithsign but we did not find any post related to The Kashmir Files movie anywhere.

Now it is clear that the picture that is going viral is edited. But for confirmation, we have contacted Seth Phillips by mail. This news will be updated as soon as the reply comes from there.

In the social scanning of user Ashish Rayal, who shared the post with the fake claim, we came to know that the user is a resident of Rishikesh.

Conclusion: Vishvas News investigated the post and found that the picture that is going viral is fake. The placard seen in the hand of a foreigner has been edited.
