A video depicting a piece of broccoli twitching after being injected with liquid falsely claimed to be an 'artificial' vegetable from a lab run by Bill Gates is actually part of a food art project. This misinformation was spread through posts on various social platforms, misleadingly captioned as Bill Gates' lab-grown 'artificial' product. However, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has refuted these claims.
The artist behind the video, Russel Cameron, posted it on TikTok and Instagram, indicating it as a creative project under hashtags like #labveggie and #labfood. Cameron, identified as a video creator and artist on Instagram, showcases several similar food art videos on his social media accounts. Cameron had not responded to Reuters' request for comment at the time of the report.
