Fact or Fake? 60 Klu Klux Klan members recently committed suicide in South Carolina. The men, all between the ages of 45 and 60, took cyanide after holding a short prayer service. The mass suicide was a protest in response to the news that Harriet Tubman's image would be placed on the $20 bill. They left a suicide note filled with vulgar language stating how they couldn't live in a world where first a black man was President and now a black woman was on their money. They were going home to Jesus. A big old fake but people are falling for it. The infamous fake tmzworldnews.com posted the story and people have run with it! I even saw it on Facebook this morning.

I cannot understand why there are still news about the Klu Klux Klan there. Or, that there are still people who are willing to belong to those and other groups.

The Klan is still strong. Why would there be no news?

Rumor mongers like that should face the law. BTW, is Klu Klux Klan still existing or did it really exist?

There are a lot of wild stories out there that are true, but that story does seem fake.

I think they took it a bit too far with this one.

Well, it is sad that the spewing of fake news has so many people believing it.
