These “Brazil Riot” Photos On Twitter Are Not From Today

Warning: Old images are being posted on social media during Germany’s World Cup rout of Brazil.

1. This photo posted on social media purports to be Brazilian fans rioting during Germany’s 7-1 victory over Brazil.

The tweet has since been deleted by the @TheWorIdCup account.

2. But it’s actually from June 26, 2013, when riot police clashed with demonstrators during a protest near the Mineirao Stadium in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.
