After Chauvin’s sentencing hearing on Friday, supporters of QAnon posted to a Telegram channel for believers, expressing their skepticism that the former police officer was actually the person that had appeared in court.
A user going by the name Rose Watschke wrote: “His hair color seems to change everytime you see him. Facial features are significantly different too. Do you think the brainwashed people see it.”
“This Chauvin looks NOTHING like the original,” a Telegram user in the QAnon channel, who identified themselves only as Christine, wrote.
“Derek did not commit suicide. We all know who killed him,” a conspiracy theorist commented on an Instagram clip from the sentencing hearing.
