A false claim on social media says the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation has a sign reading “Center for Global Human Population Reduction” on its building exterior. The image circulating online has been digitally altered to include the words “Center for Global Human Population Reduction” on the Foundation’s building façade. In reality, this sign reads, “Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation”.
