A fake photo of the Sydney Opera House supposedly flashing the faces of presumptive president Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. and vice president Sara Duterte-Carpio is circulating online.

On May 13 and 14, several Facebook (FB) groups and pages published a photo of the iconic Australian landmark with the images of Marcos and Duterte-Carpio allegedly illuminating its arched sail-like white roofs.
