People Think ‘The Onion’s Report on NYPD’s Stop and Kiss Program Is Actually Real
An Onion video released Tuesday about a fake NYPD “stop-and-kiss” policy, “which allows officers to kiss anyone who they think looks suspicious,” is upsetting a lot of people on the internet who think it’s real. Dumb people treating Onion stories as fact is nothing new, but reactions to this one are still pretty fun.
Check out these real tweets about the story:
