BuzzFeed News reports that a woman who was seen going viral in the #IraniansDetestSoleimani campaign on Twitter is actually an actress lobbyist, Saghar Erica Kasraie, who previously used to lobby for a Libyan militia. This comes on the heels of a new report which shows that the U.S. is involved in a covert tech program to aid the protests.
Kasraie is the modern century Nayirah al-Ṣabaḥ, using Twitter as the new form of media to go viral with a fake story of support. BuzzFeed did some deep digging and what they uncovered was that Kasraie had been featured as a registered lobbyist.
The video titled: “Truth From an Iranian,” which has amassed more than 10 million views across Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, is a fraud that is helping the hashtag “#IraniansDetestSoleimani” go viral.
