People want attention at any cost it seems. According to Complex, there have reports of people stealing photos from social media accounts, and sharing those random pictures of people with the intent of claiming that they were at the concert and are still missing.

Luckily the unsuspected victims of these photo thefts are taking notice, and shutting down these false claims of them missing due to the Manchester Arena bombing.

Twitter users are also using the power of the retweet to get the message out that people aren’t missing and its a hoax.


It is a scary thought that there are people that would use such a tragedy to troll, and get attention, but this is where we are.
