According to Dubawa, a fact-checking platform, the post generated over 742,000 views, 827 reposts, and 1,000 comments.

The absence of the image to have credible sources suggested that it might have been generated from artificial intelligence (AI) technology.

This hypothesis was validated when the image was subjected to AI image detectors.

The AI image detector Hive Moderation concluded that there was a 99.5% likelihood it was AI-generated. Is it AI? gave a 95.24% likelihood, Illuminarty 95.1%, Content at Scale 94% and Hugging Face also gave a 97% possibility of the picture being AI-generated.
