FACT CHECK: No, Marjorie Taylor Greene Did Not Post An Apology To PETA On Thanksgiving
A photo shared on Facebook allegedly shows a post from X, formerly Twitter, of Georgia Republican Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene preparing a turkey while apologizing to the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA).
The screenshot originates from a parody account. Greene made no such post.
Greene is aiming to push a vote to impeach Homeland Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas within two legislative days, according to Politico. Greene says Mayorkas “violated his oath” of office by unleashing a large wave of illegal immigration, according to Washington Times.
The X post purports Green apologized to Peta while preparing her Thanksgiving meal. The image appears to show Greene smiling while preparing a turkey. The account’s display name reads, “Marjorie Taylor Greene Pre…” before it cuts off.
“Sorry PETA, we are eating good today Who wants to come join us ?” the post reads.
The post originates from an X account that’s full display name reads, “Marjorie Taylor Greene Press Release (Parody),” which is not visible in the Facebook screenshot. The account’s bio reads “On a mission to arm wrestle Elon Musk Join the MTG Army today (parody).”
The photo dates back to 2022, when it was posted by Greene to her Instagram. “From my home to yours, I hope everyone had a blessed Thanksgiving!” the caption reads. (RELATED: Did Marjorie Taylor Greene Make Merrick Garland Cry During A Hearing?)
