MIAMI (WSVN) - Fake ads telling Clinton supporters to vote-by-text are making their way through the internet.
The ads show an image of Hillary Clinton with the text “Vote Early. Text ‘Hillary’ to 59925 Today.”
The ads even have a message at the bottom saying you must be 18 years old to vote and certain restrictions apply. They also have the campaign logo along with a message reading “Paid For By Hillary For President.”
The only problem: voting through text message is not a real thing.
The ads have garnered criticism for their falsehood, along with some saying the ads are targeted at minority voters. One ad shows an image of a black woman while another was written entirely in Spanish.
The Washington Post reports that Twitter has begun removing the ads and has suspended the accounts that created them.
