European Parliament: Photo and Nigel Farage

european parliament: The same photo is circulating again on social media, but with the sign changed to My legs are open for refugees, according to National Observer. Kretzel says the altered photo was tweeted on the weekend by Nigel Farage, the former leader of the UK Independence Party and a member of the European Parliament. Lasia Kretzel was working for CKOM in Saskatoon in 2015 when she attended a rally supporting Syrian refugees. ; She wrote a story about the rally and snapped a photo of a woman with a sign around her neck that read My door is open for refugees. Kretzel called out Farage on Twitter, saying she had taken the original photo, and he acknowledged the sexualized picture as phoney. The photo was no longer on Farage's page on Monday. The photo turns out to be Fake News, but the refugees welcome brigade need to think harder about what is happening, Farage later said in a tweet that Kretzel saved in a screen grab.
