Celebrity Endorsements for Sadiq Khan Crime Campaign Were Fakes Created by Advertising Agency

An information campaign working to persuade Londoners not to arm themselves with knives contained faked supportive tweets from celebrities, leading to the material being withdrawn and deleted.

Fake tweets supporting the campaign included ones from actor John Boyega — who recently appeared in Star Wars: The Last Jedi — and musicians Lethal Bizzle and Jessie J.

After it was revealed the celebrities had not been consulted about the campaign, the material was removed, reports The Times. The fake tweets were reportedly created by an advertising agency but were never removed before the project went live.
