Fake News Check: Cardi B Fans Likely To Catch STD
Brief Outline: A viral news from huzlers website claims that claims fans of the singer Cardi B more likely to catch sexually transmitted diseases according to research
Ayupp Verification: Fake
Origin: The hoax was published on May 3, 2018 by Huzlers under the headline "Research Shows Cardi B Fans Are More Likely To Catch STDs And Cheat".
A team of researchers from UCLA recently conducted an experiment with 200 female students, making sure that 100 of those students were big Cardi B fans (Group A), while the other 100 were not (Group B). Researchers also made sure that none of the 200 students already had a sexually transmitted disease. The 200 students were then brought back after 6 months for STD testing, however, the students were never explained the purpose of the experiment and were never aware of the STD testing, the testing was simply described as a “regular checkup”.
The results of the experiment were shocking. Of the 100 females students in group A, 92 students tested positive for an STD, meanwhile only 4 students in group B tested positive. The results were clear enough for the researchers to conclude that Cardi B fans had a 90% higher chance of acquiring an STD in only 6 months time, and experts say a whole year time would 100% guarantee an STD.Google Advertisement:
