This image is digitally fabricated. Sphere Entertainment confirmed that the Las Vegas sphere displayed no such message in an email to Check Your Fact.
The MSG Sphere in Las Vegas is being billed as the world’s largest spherical structure at 366 feet tall and 516 feet wide, according to CNN. The $2.3 billion entertainment venue has recently being showing a video of a giant eyeball, leaving some viewers feeling unsettled, UNILAD reported.
A TikTok purports the Las Vegas sphere displayed a negative message about President Joe Biden. The video allegedly show an aerial, nighttime view of the sphere with the message “f*** Biden,” the first word being censored by an American flag.
This is not genuine footage, however. Check Your Fact found no credible news reports about the sphere displaying this message.
A spokesperson for Sphere Entertainment confirmed that the image is not genuine in an email to Check Your Fact.
The spokesperson directed Check Your Fact to a press kit of images of the sphere, which features images like landscapes and fireworks. No political statements or profanity was featured. (RELATED: No, Image Does Not Show The Las Vegas Sphere With A Windows Error Message)
