CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –
Breitbart incorrectly used a photo of the Cleveland Cavaliers championship parade in an article about Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump yesterday, depicting the huge crowd gathered to celebrate the team’s victory as a crowd at Trump’s rally in Jacksonville.
“Trump’s Jacksonville Rally Draws 15,000,” reads the article’s headline, originally accompanied by a picture of thousands of Clevelanders, many outfitted in yellow and red, standing downtown. Breitbart appears to have gotten the picture from Twitter user Tatiana Wright, who posted it earlier that evening.
The picture, originally from CNN, has since been changed after a social media firestorm from Cleveland sports fans over its use.
Breitbart issued a correction, saying “A photograph that was incorrectly attributed on social media to the rally in Jacksonville has been removed.” Wright posted a Tweet explaining why she will not take the photo off of her account.
(The picture has since been deleted from Wright’s account)
