Claim: this is a photo of John Lennon and Yoko Ono holding a sign that says “Don’t hate what you don’t understand”.

Some other versions of the sign text:

  • Beards are epic
  • 9/11 Truth Now
  • Rock is over
  • All you need is (another) war

Claim is false. The original text is well known: “War is Over! (If you want it)” – “Happy Christmas from John and Yoko”. Original photo by Frank Barrat, 1969 via Getty Images:
