This claim is unfounded.
A recent apocalyptic Facebook post suggests humanity is doomed, and without much time to reckon with that reality.
"Everyone will be WIPED out in 21 days," reads a description of the nearly 13-minute video in the Sept. 17 post.
It was flagged as part of Meta’s efforts to combat false news and misinformation on its News Feed. (Read more about our partnership with Meta, which owns Facebook and Instagram.)
The video in the post makes no proclamations about anyone getting wiped out in 21 days — literally or figuratively — and provides no proof for such a claim. Rather, it shows footage of Fox Business host Larry Kudlow criticizing President Joe Biden’s economic policies.
We rate this post False.
