A Facebook post from an unverified Jennifer Aniston account has recently gone viral. The post implies that the actress was responsible for rescuing a homeless teenage mother and her infant child.
The story, combined with the photo of Aniston and an unidentified woman, led many commenters to believe that the story is about the actress.
Since being posted to the Jennifer Aniston fan page, the post has been shared more than 42,000 times and has accumulated more than 300,000 likes.
However, the Facebook post is a nearly word-for-word copy of a Reddit comment from five years ago.
A representative for Aniston told BuzzFeed Canada that the actress has nothing to do with the story on Facebook.
"That is not a story from Jennifer – we have no idea where it came from," her publicist Stephen Huvane wrote in an email. "Jennifer does not participate in social media so most of what you see is fake."
