Tunisia's Funny Responses To Wrongful Reports That Stars Wars' Sets Under ISIS Control
Majors news outlets like CNN and Huffington Post wrongfully reported that Stars Wars' set in Tunisia was now controlled by ISIS; so Tunisians -who know first hand that it's totally untrue- responded the best way the know: by making mèmes and sharing them on social media !
Twitter user Hédi had the breaking news
ISIS troops were deployed in town
Then news of the ISIS takeover began to spread in the Galaxy
Sharia started to be enforced
And as the new bearded caliph was settling...
...Tunisian rebellion started to regroup
Western aliens started to get scared
A huge mosque was built
And as usual, ISIS produced new propaganda videos
Joking aside, ISIS doesn't control any part of Tunisia!
But CNN used "Star Wars" in their title as a clicking bait (wonder where they learned such a technique? *wink*) and all other major media outlets jumped on it, misinterpreted it and blew it out of proportion without verifying anything; Or even reading the article!
Had they read it, they would have found out that saying that the Stars Wars sets were now taken over by ISIS in their subsequent articles is like if Buzzfeed's Alison Vingiano had titled this story about Two Illinois Men Arrested For Conspiring To Help ISIS "ISIS claim Chicago" !
I wonder how Americans would respond to such an article? Not with humor and trolling I guess...
