KATHMANDU: The American Embassy will remove a fake photo of a snow leopard purportedly taken by an American photographer in the Khumbu region of Solukhumbu, Nepal, which is considered the base of Mount Everest, from its social media accounts. After the Alpine International magazine published the photo, the embassy stated that they will remove the photo that they initially shared.

Kitia Pawlowski, an American photographer, went viral after posting a picture on her network claiming to have reached the Khumbu region of Nepal. The Embassy also shared the image on Facebook and Instagram, as well as a link to follow Kitia. After it was discovered that the embassy had to participate in the false propaganda of its own citizens, the embassy stated that the photo would be removed.

After discovering that the photos claimed to have been taken by Kitia had been edited by the photography experts of the French Alpine magazine, the embassy stated that the photo would be removed.

Kitia posted the photo and claimed to have worked with the US Embassy.

‘We are removing the pictures we shared some time ago,’ said the Embassy. We have no partnership with her, as they claimed.’

The embassy also stated that it was aware of the fact-checking article and that while the photographer had closed his social media accounts, his website remained operational.

It is international practice not to remove shared posts from social networks and, if necessary, to remove them with information. At the same time, the embassy announced that the photo-filled post would be removed.

However, trolling and sarcasm on social media has not stopped by mentioning embassy.
