A Sikh man from Canada had one of his photos copied and photoshopped to make it look like he had an explosive vest on in his bathroom selfie.
So far, many of the reports that have circulated about the terrorist attacks in Paris, both online and in the mainstream media, have been filled with disinformation that has since been proven wrong or contradicted. In one disturbing case, a Sikh man from Canada had one of his photos copied and photoshopped to make it look like he had an explosive vest on. Veerender Jubbal became the target of global controversy this week, after his photo was published on major international news sites, and shared to millions of people.
Eventually, a handful of internet users were able to look up Jubbal’s original photos to see that he was not strapped with explosives and that he was holding an Ipad, not a Quran, as depicted in the photoshopped image.
This image has been used, and placed on the front page of a major Spain newspaper–putting me as one of the people behind terrorist attacks.

This is not the first time that Veerender Jubbal has been at the center of an internet controversy, and it is possible that his previous feud may have led up to this. Jubbal was injected into the #gamergate debate earlier this year with his controversial remarks about racism is limited to white people.
Gamers are absolute garbage like I have been saying for a full year.
People will not stop harassing, and bothering me.
I am cute as gosh.
