circulate images of an alleged tweet by the communist deputy Karol Cariola, who would have argued the following: “We invite our fellow brothers in the Jewish community to all wear a Star of David on their clothing. Let’s show that in Chile there are many and we as a government support them.”

Checking the source of origin, we found @KaroICariolaa parody Twitter account (as described in the profile) that appears to be the same user as Karol Cariola (@KarolCariola), except for one small detail: the “l” is replaced by an “i” uppercase, which makes it difficult to distinguish them due to the similarity between both letters.

The deputy denied it

Regarding the foregoing, deputy Kariola herself denied that she is the author of the words imputed to her. In this regard, she commented: «I didn’t make that post.. I have claimed to @TwitterSecure unanswered, because the account @KaroICariola impersonates my identity with a supposed “parody account” that when read it looks the same as the original.

In addition, he adds the detail of the letters: «The difference is that the “L” of “Karol” is a capital “i” like this “I”».

Fast Check CL declares false what is imputed to the deputy Karol Cariola. The tweet comes from a parody account and the congresswoman herself denied it.
