Fact Check: Mel Gibson’s ‘The End of Israel’ Post is Not Real

Have you heard the controversial social media post supposedly made by actor Mel Gibson regarding the end of Israel? Here’s the deal: A screenshot of Israel’s flag with an hourglass and a caption hinting at an imminent end has been making the rounds on social media, with claims that Mel Gibson made the post. But hold your horses, because fact-checking investigations reveal that this whole shebang is phony. According to Gibson’s publicist, the man himself didn’t share the post, and, here’s the kicker: he doesn’t even have any social media accounts.

Alan Nierob, Gibson’s publicist, has made it crystal clear, saying that Mel Gibson isn’t behind the end of Israel posts as he doesn’t have any public or private accounts.

Even though Mel Gibson has a controversial history and has been accused of making antisemitic remarks in the past, there’s simply no credible evidence to back up the claim that he’s the mastermind behind this eyebrow-raising post. Now, let’s zoom in on the post itself for a second. It’s got more holes than a block of Swiss cheese. First off, it’s missing that little audience icon that’s the hallmark of a legit Facebook post, which smells fishier than a seafood market on a hot day. Plus, the time stamp reads “yesterday,” which doesn’t quite jive with Facebook’s usual style.
