Post claiming IOC banned transgender swimmer Lia Thomas for life is satire
An Aug. 28 Facebook post (direct link, archive link) shows a cutout photo of transgender swimmer Lia Thomas.
“International Olympic Committee Issues Lifetime Ban For Lia Thomas,” reads text in the photo.
Many commenters took the post seriously.
“Finally a win for real girls competing!!!!” wrote one Facebook user.
“It should be this way across all women's category sports!!!” wrote another.
