I saw this tweet on Twitter (it’s been self deleted by its author since it was first posted here, but add Wayback Machine link for reference) and am a bit skeptical about the claims made it—and implied—by it. Images from the tweet below; text from the Dan Hett who posted it on Twitter is here:
“this poor guy dressed himself and his kids as historical figures for halloween and got a load abuse. unbelievable, the costumes can't be that ba.... okay never mind”
First, while I believe the photo of the adult man and some children is a real photo, was this photo actually taken in 2018 during a Halloween celebration? Where did it come from? Additionally, a screenshot of supposed claims of violence made against the man and the children are made. But did this all actually happen? It seems like the claims allude to this happening in the U.S., but the avatar for the screenshot of the complain clearly shows a German flag.
Did this man dress up as a Nazi and dress up his child as Adolf Hitler for Halloween in 2018 and have he—and the children he was with—physically threatened by strangers?
