Reactions To Giant Video Shows Humanity Is Fucked, Incapable of Differentiating Between Real and Fake News

Video of a giant alligator casually strolling across a pedestrian path of a Florida nature preserve as some very eatable humans watch in awe, has been seen over 10 million times since it was posted to Facebook on Sunday evening. The footage was captured at the Circle B Bar Reserve in Polk County by a woman named Kim Joiner. But, despite the clip, quotes from other eye witnesses, additional photos, and wildlife experts weighing into various reputable news outlets about the Jurassic reptile, there are dozens of head shaking comments questioning its authenticity:

“Alligators never drag their bodies when walking unless they’re just sliding back into the water,” commented one person, who probably was a zoologist. “I’m a native, certified swamp boy along the banks of the St Johns and that’s fake,” wrote a commenter. Still, another armchair expert offered his theory: “Take a good look at the physical movements of the front and rear legs, not a gators gate.”

While it’s impossible to determine the motivations of these online reality deniers – are they just being dicks? are they kids? are they Russian trolls? are they really disputing this? — it’s undeniable that some of these social media users have adopted a pick and choose your own adventure strategy to the news.

There were dozens more of gator truthers and the authority in which some of these Facebook zealots postulate these fantastical claims made their assumptions that more infuriating. According to experts who’ve viewed the tape, the alligator is estimated to be between 14 and 16 feet long, weigh about 800 pounds, and is considered very real.

This isn’t the first time a colossal alligator became a viral sensation after it was seen traipsing around the Sunshine State either. Last May, golfers were stunned by the sudden appearance of a huge gator walking across the fairway at the Buffalo Creek Golf Club. The same reptile returned again in December, so yeah, these things tend to happen in a place teeming with prehistoric-like beasts—that’s what Florida is known for… fucking up the elections and alligators!
