Numerous mainstream media outlets falsely reported that annual Bonfire Night fireworks celebrations in the United Kingdom were actually people celebrating Joe Biden winning the presidency.
Bonfire Night, also known as Guy Fawkes Night, is an annual commemoration of public thanksgiving to celebrate the failure of the Gunpowder Plot and has been observed since the Observance of 5th November Act, which was passed by Parliament in 1606.
When the 5th of November falls just before a weekend, this year it was on a Thursday, it is common for the celebration to be spread throughout the weekend and for people to set off fireworks on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
Apparently, numerous news networks didn’t know this and instead published fake news that the fireworks were in response to Biden beating Trump.
“Fireworks lit up the sky over London, England, after Joe Biden was characterized to be the apparent winner of the presidential election,” reported ABC News.
