Actor Bruce Campbell says conservative tweet was faked

“Ash vs. Evil Dead” star Bruce Campbell is setting the record straight after he says a conservative Twitter account co-opted a photo of a bloody makeup test for one of his co-stars.

A Twitter account called Conservative Nation tweeted a photo Monday of an apparently bloodied woman along with the note: “Here’s what happened to female Trump supporter when she met ‘peaceful’ and ‘tolerant’ liberals.” Campbell said tweeted Tuesday that the photo is actually a picture of actress Samara Weaving. Weaving appeared in several episodes of the Starz series.

Campbell adds: “Check your facts, folks.”

The original tweet from Conservative Nation remains posted. It’s unclear who’s behind the account and it hasn’t responded to a tweet requesting comment.

Weaving also hasn’t responded to a request for comment.
