Heineken Did Not Sponsor a Dog Fight – Viral Facebook Photo Is Misleading

If you’re ever unsure of something you see online, remember to check out a fact-checking site like Snopes.com. Someone I love was asking all their friends to share this Facebook post to shame the Heineken beer company for sponsoring a dog fighting event. Snopes discovered the event was in Mongolia in 2010 at a venue that also held an earlier event sponsored by Heineken. The beer company did not know the venue hosted dog fights and did not know its banners were not taken down after its event. The company has since cancelled all dealings with the venue.Most Internet rumors are harmless, but if you intend to generate anger to hurt someone financially, personally or politically, it’s always wise to make sure the facts are correct first.
