Fact Check: Article On A Fictitious News Portal About A Bride Marrying A Different Groom Viral As Real Incident

A screenshot of what seems to be a news article has gone viral on social media claiming that a bride in Gwalior tied the knot with a man who she wasn’t tipped to marry after she landed at a different venue accidentally while making a paragliding entrance. 

The headline of the article reads, “Bride marries different groom as she landed in the different venue during paragliding entry.”

FACT CHECK 

NewsMobile fact-checked the above claim and found it to be FALSE. 

We noticed “Fauxy” written at the byline of the article headline. Taking a cue from this, we did a keyword search and found the same article published on ‘TheFauxy.com’. 

The about us section of this website reads, “The Fauxy is an entertainment media company that connects with young, intelligent and diverse audiences that are shaping our future. Through thought-provoking comedy and high-impact storytelling, we aim to start a conversation around subjects that are usually viewed as taboo for today’s youth.” The disclaimer reads, “The Fauxy is an entertainment portal. The content of this website is purely for entertainment purposes and readers are advised not to confuse the articles of The Fauxy as genuine and true.

We checked the Twitter handle ‘The Fauxy’ and the bio read, “India’s Finest, Fastest & Fictitious News Source.” 

Thus, it is evident from the above information that an article published on a fictitious news website about a bride marrying a different groom after she landed at a different venue is being falsely shared as a real incident. Therefore, the viral claim is false.
