Quick Take

Various social media posts show a picture of Sylvester Stallone t-shirt including a message against COVID-19 vaccine and Biden. We fact checked and found it to be False.

The Claim

“There are 4 useless things in this world: a woke person, COVID-19 vaccine, Anthony Fauci and Biden,” reads the alleged message on Stallone’s black t-shirt. The post can be seen here, here, and here and a screenshot is attached below.

Fact Check

Did Sylvester Stallone t-shirt include a message against COVID-19 vaccine and Biden?

No. The picture has been altered. The original photo can be viewed on Shutterstock as a stock image. You can find the original picture here which shows Stallone wearing a plain black t-shirt.

When was the picture taken?

According to the description on the post, the picture predates the COVID-19 pandemic. But, the picture was captured on June 28, 2018, which dates to pre-covid times as Covid became a pandemic in 2020. Other images from that day can be seen here, here, and here.

Therefore, the image is digitally altered to include a message against COVID-19 vaccines, U.S. President Joe Biden and U.S. top infectious disease expert Anthony Fauci. Hence, the claim is false.
