The headline: “Spanish police crack gang moving migrants on jet skis.” Lukas Podolski: not part of that.

In a weirdly amusing stupid piece of not-fake news, Breitbart posted a photo of German soccer star Lukas Podolski.

More amusingly, the story it was attached to had nothing to do with Lukas Podolski.

“Spanish Police Crack Gang Moving Migrants On Jet Skis,” the story read. Podolski is neither Spanish Police, nor a member of a crack gang, nor a member of a Spanish police crack gang, nor a migrant on a jet ski.

Podolski was once on a jet ski, however, hence this photo. He recently retired from the German national team and plays in Japan after a long career in Europe, starring for Arsenal and Bayern Munich, among other teams.

The mistake was quickly corrected, apparently.

There’s no evidence...yet...at least. Give it a couple days.
