Group pretending to be Trump’s 2020 campaign caught photoshopping MAGA hats onto people of color

Rykard Jenkins got a rude surprise recently when he found out that a group pretending to be the 2020 Trump for president campaign decided to steal a photo of him and use Photoshop to turn him into an advertisement.

Thing is, Jenkins isn’t even a U.S. citizen. He’s best known as a contestant on the British reality show “Love Island,” and the photo the Trump team appropriated was actually of him wearing a red baseball cap advertising the FXB brand, according to The Daily Dot:

Jenkins seems to have a sense of humor about the whole thing, maybe because being across an ocean from Trump creates enough distance to laugh about being turned into a Trump supporter against your will. He shared a picture of a local news story about the Photoshop job, joking about the Viagra warning below it.

Twitter lit up with responses to the appropriation of another person’s photo:

Others on social media urged Jenkins to file a lawsuit against the Trump campaign:

This article originally said the Trump 2020 campaign was responsible for Photoshopping the MAGA hat onto Rykard Jenkins. It has been corrected to reflect that the culprits were pretending to be working for the Trump campaign. We apologize for the mistake.
