On Thursday morning, Twitter user Tatiana Wright posted a photograph of a Trump rally in Florida with the caption "#US: look at #Trump #TrumpRally crowd in #Jacksonville #Florida! This is how #US #Democracy looks like ?? #Tatiana ???"
The only problem? The photograph was actually taken by Tom Withers, a sports writer for the Associated Press during the Cavaliers championship celebration in downtown Cleveland.
Before hitting mall, I snapped this at about 1 pm from Hilton balcony. Doesn't even do crowd justice. pic.twitter.com/oIVjTPE7F8

And of course once fans caught on, Twitter exploded. Media outlet Breitbart even picked up the photograph as being a legitimate picture of the Florida rally - up until users pointed out that they were wrong.
LOL. Okay, guys.

Although Breitbart issued a retraction on their website and took down the photograph, many continued to criticize Wright for posting the picture in the first place.

But although Wright deleted the original tweet, she replied to almost every response she recieved, saying that posting the misleading photo was intentional.

Whether she meant to do it intentionally or not, Cleveland fans were less than pleased.
The "politician" claims this photo was taken at a Trump rally in FL, when it's CLEARLY the Cavs champ parade in CLE https://t.co/2LdQg1WXUz
