A Facebook user claimed that Kamala Harris ate beef in “happiness” after becoming Vice President of the United States. Shared with an image of Harris biting into a piece of meat, the claim reads, “After becoming vice president in happiness taking bite of b…f. The meat eating half brahmin black Vice President. #KamalaHarris”
The claim comes after Harris became the Vice President-elect of the United States with Joe Biden, the President-elect. The United States Senator is said to be of African and Indian descent.
Fact Check/ Verification
A Google reverse image search of Harris’ photograph led us to her August 2019 tweet.
Captioned, “Finally got my pork chop!” Harris is seen relishing the meat in a 11-second video attached.
A blog included Harris’ photograph stating it was shot during the Iowa State Fair.
An LA Times article titled, “The progressive Indian grandfather who inspired Kamala Harris,” describes her Indian-Brahmin links.
Contrary to the claim in context, the image of Kamala Harris biting into a piece of meat is from the Iowa State Fair in 2019. Also, the image shows her eating a pork chop, not beef.
Result: Misplaced Context
