Fact Check-Marjorie Taylor Green’s face superimposed on photo of woman with Soviet Union t-shirt

A picture of a woman wearing a Soviet Union t-shirt while doing a Nazi salute has been digitally altered to add the face of Republican U.S. Representative Marjorie Taylor Green.

An iteration on Twitter had garnered at least 2,118 retweets (here).

Some users on social media question if the image, which appears to show Green also wearing underwear on top of gray tights and a red cape, is an authentic portrait of the Republican representative. Others, however, seem to think it is.

“Wove! @RepMTG is a serious radical, communist.. she’s everything she calls the democrats.. such a hypocrite,” one Twitter user wrote (here).

“And now she sits in the House of Representatives,” a Facebook user commented. (here)

Reuters could not verify the original source of the photograph. But a reverse image search on TinEye revealed the unedited image has been circulating online since at least July 22, 2008 (here). A 2021 tweet featuring the picture is viewable (here).

The color saturation in the altered picture also appears to have been manipulated.

A comparison of the edited and original version can be found (here).

Reuters previously addressed another altered photograph of Marjorie Taylor Green (here).

VERDICT

Altered. This photograph does not show U.S. Representative Marjorie Taylor Green, it has been manipulated to include her face.
