Giant Squid Hoax – Photo of Giant Squid in Santa Monica Fake

The giant squid hoax has come to an end as initial reports of an enormous squid have been debunked.

An article along with a photo brought attention to a giant squid that was reportedly on the Santa Monica coast. However, the photo has been reported to be a hoax.

According to The Poch Times, the giant squid was allegedly a result of radioactive gigantism. The original article stated:

“Scientists believe that following the 2011 disaster at the Fukushima Dai-ichi Nuclear Power Plant an unknown number of sea creatures suffered genetic mutations that triggered uncontrolled growth – or ‘radioactive gigantism.”

After further investigation the original article has turned out to be a satire on the issue of radioactive chemicals deposited in oceans. The photo featuring the abnormally large squid was photoshopped. While the original article claimed the giant squid was 160 feet from the head to tentacle tip, the real squid in the photo was no more than 30 feet long. Moreover, the article also falsely quoted a Santa Monica Parks Manager who does not really exist.

The original writer of the article has not commented on the giant squid hoax. Additionally, the website where the article originates, The Lightly Braised Turnip, does not advertise that it is a satirical publisher and has made no comment toward the false reporting.
