Anna Mock | Fact Check Reporter

A video shared on Facebook allegedly shows images of a satanic-themed hotel that is set to open in Plano, Texas.

Verdict: False

The photos are from an apparel brand not associated with any hotel. A spokesperson for the city of Plano confirmed no such business is set to operate in the city.

Fact Check: 

Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzalez said the shooting of a 4-year-old by her 3-year-old sister with an unsecured firearm was “very preventable,” according to CNN. At least 1,000 migrants, mostly Venezuelan, tried to gain entry in to the U.S. via the Paso Del Norte bridge, with Republicans blaming the cancellation of the “Remain-in-Mexico” policy, Fox News reported.

A Facebook video allegedly shows photos of a Satanic-themed hotel that is set to open in Plano on June 6. The post shares a photo of a red bedroom with a goat-like figure. “This is a satanic hotel located in Plano, Texas ” the caption reads. “This brand new hotel will open June 6 at 6pm (666).”

The claim is fabricated. Check Your Fact found no credible news reports about a satanic-themed hotel opening in Plano, Texas.  The photo originates from Ink Poisoning, an apparel brand. The company posted the images on Facebook with a disclaimer stating the images are “AI concept art created by us.”

Steve Stoler, the city of Plano’s director of media relations, told Check Your Fact via email, “There is no ‘Satanic-themed hotel’ operating in our City. As I’m sure you read in The Dallas Observer article, the person who started the Facebook thread proclaimed ‘It’s not real. I’m trolling someone.'”

Stoler directed Check Your Fact to articles from the The Dallas Observer and Local Profile debunking the claims. (RELATED: No, Obama Did Not Pose In Front Of Satanic Artwork)
