Pictures of Muslim Protests in London-Truth!
Summary of eRumor:
Muslims around the world are posting photos and videos of themselves burning the ISIS flag to protest the terrorist organization in a campaign that imitates the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge.
This eRumor is true, and photos and videos of the flag burning can be found on Twitter by searching #BurnISISFlagChallenge.
Three Lebanese teenagers started the viral campaign in Lebanon in August 2014, and it quickly spread throughout the Arab world. By early September, the movement spread to London and parts of Australia.
Backlash against the campaign came almost as quickly as it spread. Within days of the Lebanese teenagers posting the first videos online, a Lebonese justice minister called for the “sternest punishments” for those who burned the militant group’s flag, the Washington Post reports.
