Last night, ABC’s The View invited Donald Trump Jr on as a guest – because having just one child of a famous politician on the show is not enough (the co-host Meghan McCain is the daughter of the late senator John McCain). They also invited Trump Jr’s girlfriend – because in today’s political landscape, even the most tenuous link to fame or power seems as good a credential as any for being worthy of a platform.
It wasn’t long before the chatshow descended into chaos. Soon, McCain and Trump Jr were in a very contentious battle over whose dad was bigger than whose – McCain pointing out that Trump said mean things about her dad; Trump Jr pointing out that his dad had Made America Great Again.

It was low blows from then on, thrown from all sides. A discussion started about how President Trump has stooped to lower levels of moral decency than any other president, for example, by boasting about sexually assaulting women and calling Mexicans rapists.
If the title of Trump Jr’s new book is anything to go by (Triggered: How the Left Thrives on Hate and Wants to Silence Us), to start a fight over political correctness was probably his aim. And that is exactly what happened.
If we’re going to talk about bringing down the discourse, Trump Jr retorted, perhaps we should talk about the time that Joy Behar – another host on the show – wore blackface. (In 2016, Behar joked about her “costume” on TV, saying she was dressed as a “beautiful African woman” and admitted to darkening her skin). And what about the time that the co-host Whoopi Goldberg, he continued, invented the term “not rape-rape” to describe Roman Polanski’s alleged drugging and rape of a 13-year-old child?
The ensuing pile-on must have been music to his ears: throughout the show, the hosts talked over him a number of times; at one point Behar chastised the audience for cheering him (“this isn’t a Maga rally!” she said).
This all made for perfectly predictable viral content: people shared videos of Trump Jr calling the two out. “Guess you could say I just #Triggered The View!!” exclaimed Trump Jr online.

The irony of a man justifying his father’s alleged sexual assaults by talking about his accomplishments, then criticizing Goldberg for defending Polanski is not lost on me. But if the point of his book is to suggest that cancel culture and no-platforming are examples of the unforgiving, righteous nature of the left, then here it is.
The hosts found themselves in a double bind. If Behar and Goldberg were to defend themselves, what could they say? That it was a different time? That they have changed? Trump Jr would just ask for equal forgiveness for his father. If they don’t have an answer to his attacks, the implicit question stands: shouldn’t Behar and Goldberg be cancelled already?
Neither Behar nor Goldberg have ever fully apologized, and Goldberg has used her platform to make excuses for her friend Mel Gibson, who was caught on tape spewing racist comments. Clearly, they are flawed. But no one – not even people on the left – is born with fully formed progressive views.
People make mistakes. That doesn’t mean we should shrug and say we therefore shouldn’t aspire to any moral compass – which is what it seems Trump Jr is trying to do. Nor does it excuse Behar, Goldberg or Trump Jr – they clearly each need to reflect on their own positions, perhaps privately – before subjecting us to this on live TV. But it does mean that progressives are sometimes too eager to call for people’s heads.
As for the rest of us? We should be triggered by a president who locks children in cages, and who equates leftwing protest with “alt-right” hate crimes. He is the president: we have a right to criticize harmful policy. Plus, we couldn’t cancel him even if we tried. But we need to stop making it so easy for him to get to us. His fans will be brimming with glee at his son’s performance.

Whoopi Goldberg, the co-host of ABC’s The View, was the target of a fake quote circulating online claiming she used a racial epithet against Fox News host Jeanine Pirro. And it wasn’t the first such attack; Goldberg has become a prominent target of fake news and harassment.
On July 20, Twitter user Josh Cornett — who previously created a fake quote targeting Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) — tweeted that “sources at ABC” said Goldberg had told “co-host Ana Navarro” that she “won’t sit there and be lectured by Trump’s Sand Nig*er,” referring to Pirro, who had appeared on The View and sparred with Goldberg.
The quote, which ABC’s publicity director has said “absolutely is false,” has spread on Twitter, including from QAnon conspiracy theorists Michael Moates and Lisa Crowley, and on Facebook and message board 4chan. It was also pushed on air as real by North Dakota talk station KHND-AM, where a host said Goldberg has “no morals and no compass.” A petition was even launched calling for Goldberg’s firing based on the fake quote.
Since early 2017, Goldberg has become a regular target for fake stories like this one, smearing the host’s reputation:
In March 2017, a site that claims to be satire but buried its satire disclaimer made up a story claiming that Goldberg criticized the widow of a slain Navy SEAL by saying, “She was just looking for attention. These military widows love their 15 minutes in the spotlight.” Fake news sites subsequently posted the story, helping spread it on Facebook, where users responded by calling Goldberg a “fat, ugly, ignorant, racist pig” and a “scumbag.” The fake quote was also turned into a meme that spread online. California talk station KSFO-AM shared the story on air, with the hosts indicating they weren’t sure it was true but saying they “wouldn’t put it past her.” Syndicated radio show Walton & Johnson also shared it, with the hosts seemingly suggesting that someone should shoot her, saying, “Surely there’s a sniper rifle somewhere in Hollywood.”
That same month, Christopher Blair, a self-proclaimed troll who has made up stories to fool conservatives, falsely claimed that Fox News had hired “filthy, lying liberal” Goldberg to replace its host Sean Hannity. Multiple sites based in Macedonia and in Kosovo subsequently copied the article. Accounts subsequently shared the Kosovo site’s copy on Facebook, writing the story “won’t go over well” and “definitely deserves the ‘angry’ reaction,” according to text captured by the social media tracking app CrowdTangle.
In April 2017, a digitally manipulated image of Goldberg wearing a shirt showing President Donald Trump shooting himself in the head appeared online. The image continued to spread online into the summer, and it also spread to radio, shared on air by conservative radio hosts on Michigan’s WDTK-AM (which later corrected the story) and Pennsylvania’s WFYL-AM (where a host suggested viewers should boycott The View).
In June 2017, Blair published another made-up story that Goldberg had been arrested for running a puppy mill. Multiple sites based in Macedonia subsequently copied it, and accounts that seem to be based in Macedonia shared it on Facebook, where users said the report showed Goldberg should be “in jail where she belongs” and that it was “time to take Whoopi to the garbage Dump!”
In May, after Roseanne Barr’s ABC show was canceled because of a racist tweet she posted, the fake image of Goldberg with the Trump shirt was revived in defense of Barr. Barr retweeted the image, which went viral again on Facebook. It was even shared by Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller. It also exploded onto the air waves of radio stations throughout the country — where hosts used it to suggest some kind of double standard — including Texas music station KISS-FM and talk station WBAP-AM, Colorado talk station KCOL-AM, Maryland talk stations WCBM-AM and WFMD-AM, Louisiana talk station KAOK-AM, Illinois talk station WLS-AM (where a co-host told another host pushing the image that it was fake), Pennsylvania talk stations WFYL-AM and WAEB-AM (where a host said it could be photoshopped before sharing it anyway), Florida talk station WHPT-FM, Georgia talk station WYAY-FM, South Carolina talk station WYRD-FM, Ohio talk station WNIR-FM, and syndicated radio shows Rick and Bubba and Beyond Reality.
In July, YourNewsWire, without any proof, claimed that ABC was “considering firing” Goldberg. The likely fake story has gained traction on Facebook, where it was shared, among other places, on an alt-right page, and it was copied by a based in Kosovo.
These fake stories have taken their toll: Speaking on The View, Goldberg said the fake military widow story “endangered my family’s life and endangered my life.” When the fake Trump shirt image first appeared the following month, Goldberg was again forced to debunk it on The View, noting it was a photoshopped image of the shirt she actually wore to the Women’s March. And when the image was revived by Barr and others in May, Goldberg criticized Barr on The View and again explained that the image was fake.
These attacks on Goldberg come as studies from Pew Research Center have found that Black people and women have disproportionately been the target of online harassment. Another regular victim of fake news, Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), is also a Black woman.
There are signs that these fake stories are still spreading: A 4chan user shared the fake military widows quote meme in a July 23 thread about “Politically sound negroes,” writing, “Kill this one.” And though an incognito Google search for “whoopi trump shirt” shows debunks right below, it still brings up as the top result shirts from the fake image for sale from different sellers with labels such as “Whoopi Goldberg Trump shirt,” “Whoopi Trump Shirt Make America Great Again,” and “Whoopi Goldberg Make America Great Again Trump Shirt.”
Sid Miller deletes fake Whoopi Goldberg image, lashes out at The View’
3:35 p.m Thursday update: Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller deleted a doctored photo of Whoopi Goldberg from his Facebook page Wednesday that he had posted in response to ABC’s cancellation of the sitcom “Roseanne.”
The photo-shopped image showed Goldberg wearing a T-shirt depicting President Donald Trump shooting himself in the head. Miller called for ABC to cancel television show “The View,” which Goldberg is a host of, if the photo was “proven true.”
The original photo of Goldberg was taken at the New York women’s march last year, where she wore a shirt that bore the message: “And you thought I was a nasty woman before? Buckle up, buttercup.”
Miller posted two more times about the television show after deleting the original, still calling for “The View” to be canceled due to the hosts’ criticism of Trump’s administration.
Earlier: Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller posted a doctored photo of Whoopi Goldberg on Facebook Wednesday morning showing her wearing a T-shirt of President Donald Trump shooting himself in the head. Miller wrote, “if proven true,” the photo is grounds for ABC’s daytime talk television show, “The View,” in which Goldberg is a host, to be canceled.
Goldberg first addressed the photo-shopped image on “The View” in April 2017, and spent part of Wednesday’s show to again dispel the fake image. She showed viewers a photo of her that is the basis of the altered photo at the New York women’s march last year, where she wore a T-shirt that bore the message: “And you thought I was a nasty woman before? Buckle up, buttercup.”
The doctored image, which has circulated the web since last year, was also shared by Roseanne Barr during a Tuesday Twitter tirade that resulted in ABC cancelling her revived sitcom.
“While I in no way condone the highly inappropriate tweet sent by comedian Roseanne Barr, I call on ABC Television to maintain the same standards that they used in cancelling the Roseanne show and also cancel The View,” Miller’s Facebook post said. “If proven true, Whoopi Goldberg’s wearing of shirt depicting our President being shot in the head us grounds for immediate termination. At present, all I see is hypocrisy and double standards from ABC.”
Miller’s Facebook post with the altered image has generated thousands of shares, likes and comments since it was posted Wednesday morning.
Todd Smith, Miller’s campaign spokesman, told the American-Statesman that neither he nor the commissioner knew if the doctored photo was real before posting it to the Facebook page.
“We post hundreds of things a week. We put stuff out there. We’re like Fox News. We report, we let people decide,” Smith said.
VERIFY: Did Whoopi Goldberg wear a graphic shirt of President Trump hurting himself?
Here are three things we’re verified Wednesday afternoon:
A KHOU 11 News viewer sent in a photo of a Walmart $1,000 gift card she received via email. She’s a single mother and she wanted us find out if it was real.
We reached out to Walmart and a spokesman confirmed the coupon is a fake. Walmart never participates in these online coupon offers.
We also verified a viral photo of Whoopi Goldberg making the rounds again on social media. It’s a violent image of President Trump hurting himself with the word’s “Making America Great Again.”
The picture has been circulating around on social media for almost a year. Even Goldberg addressed it on ABC’s “The View” where she proved it was photoshopped and a fake.
Finally, we verified the news out about Ambien. The prescription drug has been trending on Twitter all day thanks to a tweet from Roseanne Barr. Barr wrote, “It was 2 in the morning and I was Ambien tweeting.”
That tweet was an explanation for another tweet about former Obama White House adviser Valerie Jarrett where she compared her to an ape. Barr somehow linking her racist tweet to side effects of Ambien.
That claim we can verify is false. Ambien drug manufacturer Sanofi responding to Barr’s tweet saying “While all pharmaceutical treatments have side effects, racism is not a known side effect of any Sanofi medication.”
To be fair Ambien has led to behavioral side effects in some patients.
Is there something you’d like us to verify, email us at [email protected] or reach out to us on Facebook and Twitter.
Whoopi Goldberg slams Roseanne for fake shirt tweet: Don’t ‘drag other people down’
Whoopi Golderg is speaking out against Roseanne Barr in the wake of ABC’s decision to cancel the disgraced TV icon’s popular, self-titled sitcom after Barr tweeted a racist attack against former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett.
Early Wednesday, Barr retweeted numerous messages of support, including one that featured a Photoshopped image of Goldberg wearing a shirt depicting violence against President Donald Trump. “Out of curiosity @ABC & @Disney this is okay with you?” the tweet in question reads.
Many Twitter users have since pointed out the image as a fake, and Goldberg herself spoke on the issue during Wednesday morning’s episode of The View on ABC.

“In her Twitter rant following the cancellation, retweeted a false picture of me… Here is the truth about this shirt I was wearing at the Women’s March in New York. It very clearly says, ‘And you thought I was a nasty woman before? Buckle up, Buttercup.’” Goldberg said directly into the camera. “Now some bonehead photoshopped a horrific image on the shirt and she retweeted this. So this is what I’m going to say Roseanne: Just because you were caught with your pants down, don’t try to drag other people down with you. Do you understand? Don’t do that! There are times when, yeah, you’ve got to suck it up because you stepped in doo.”
The View‘s live studio audience applauded as Goldberg addressed Barr, a vocal Trump supporter whose conservative political views carried over into Roseanne‘s titular character during its nine-episode revival season earlier this year. Goldberg’s cohost Meghan McCain — daughter of Republican senator John McCain — called Barr’s retweet a “load of crap” before championing ABC’s decision to oust Barr for not adhering to the corporation’s ethical standards.
“It’s easy, and it’s red meat,” Goldberg continued. “But the bottom line is simply this: I didn’t fake my shirt. Someone else faked my shirt. But that’s your tweet. That tweet came from you. That’s yours. You did this to yourself.”
Though Barr swore off Twitter after deleting her tweet about Jarrett, the 65-year-old has since used the website to apologize.
Here’s @therealroseanne’s apology. pic.twitter.com/YWZ6i6WWq7
— Kate Aurthur (@KateAurthur) May 30, 2018
“I deeply regret my comments from late last night on Twitter. Above all, I want to apologize to Valerie Jarrett, as well as to ABC and the cast and crew of the Roseanne show,” she wrote. “I am sorry for making a thoughtless joke that does not reflect my values — I love all people and am very sorry. Today my words caused hundreds of hardworking people to lose their jobs. I also sincerely apologize to the audience that has embraced my work for decades. I apologize from the bottom of my heart and hope you can find it in your hearts to forgive me.”
@ValerieJarrett i don’t know if u saw it, but I wanted2 apologize to u 4 hurting and upsetting u with an insensitive & tasteless tweet. I am truly sorry-my whole life has been about fighting racism. I made a terrible mistake wh caused hundreds of ppl 2 lose their jobs. so sorry!
— Roseanne Barr (@therealroseanne) May 30, 2018
However, Barr later appeared to blame her actions on the prescription sleeping pill Ambien on Wednesday morning.
“Guys I did something unforgiveable so do not defend me. It was 2 in the morning and I was ambien tweeting-it was memorial day too,” her message wrote. “i went 2 far & do not want it defended-it was egregious Indefensible. I made a mistake I wish I hadn’t but…don’t defend it please. ty”
Jarrett called the interaction a “teaching moment” during Tuesday evening town hall on racism hosted by MSNBC, further calling for an increased emphasis on personal responsibility in the aftermath of the controversy.
“Tone does start at the top, and we like to look up to our President and feel as though he reflects the values of our country. But I also think that every individual citizen has a responsibility too, and it’s up to all of us to push back,” she said. “Our government is only going to be as good as we make it be. And as Reverend always taught me, you have to be— people on the inside have to push hard, and people on the outside have to listen.”

Whoopi Goldberg rebukes Roseanne for sharing ‘horrific’ manipulated image of Trump
Whoopi Goldberg chided Roseanne Barr on Wednesday for sharing a picture which had been manipulated to depict Goldberg, a “The View” co-host, wearing a shirt with a graphic image of President TrumpDonald John TrumpSenate Democrats outraise Republicans, but GOP has cash edge Comey op-ed: US democracy won’t ‘come apart’ if Trump isn’t removed from office Protesters flock to the Capitol after Senate impeachment votes MORE.
“So this is what I’m going to say, Roseanne — just because you were caught with your pants down, don’t try to drag other people down with you,” Goldberg said on ABC’s “The View,” calling the doctored photo “horrific.”
Barr had retweeted an image of Goldberg participating in the Women’s March in 2017, but the image had been altered to portray Goldberg as wearing a shirt depicting Trump shooting himself over text with his signature phrase “Make America Great Again.”
Huffington Post reporter Yashar Ali highlighted the original photo late Tuesday. It appears Barr later took down the retweet.

The Twitter user who posted the fake image that Barr retweeted wrote, “Out of curiosity @ABC & @Disney this is okay with you? Hypocrisy on the Left is sickening! Your pathetic! #BoycottABC #IStandWithRoseanne.”
Barr had retweeted the photo after ABC canceled her show on Tuesday over a racist tweet she sent about former President Obama’s adviser Valerie Jarrett.
“I didn’t fake my shirt. Someone else faked my shirt,” Goldberg said Wednesday.
“But that’s your tweet. That’s on you. You did this to yourself,” she added in comments directed at Barr.
Goldberg’s co-host Meghan McCain also praised the network’s decision to cancel the sitcom reboot of “Roseanne” following the Twitter storm over the Jarrett tweet.
“I’ve been so disheartened by what’s acceptable in the world right now, what’s acceptable in the White House,” McCain said. “It’s refreshing to see someone take a stand and say ‘No, not at ABC. Not at this company. This is not acceptable rhetoric.’ ”
Trump on Wednesday blasted ABC for canceling the show, accusing the network of having a double standard when it comes to statements made about himself.
“Bob Iger of ABC called Valerie Jarrett to let her know that ‘ABC does not tolerate comments like those’ made by Roseanne Barr,” Trump tweeted. “Gee, he never called President Donald J. Trump to apologize for the HORRIBLE statements made and said about me on ABC. Maybe I just didn’t get the call?”

Texas Agriculture Commissioner Sid Miller on Wednesday posted — and then deleted about five hours later — a doctored photo on Facebook that showed television personality Whoopi Goldberg wearing a shirt that depicts President Donald Trump shooting himself in the head.
The post was in response to ABC canceling the sitcom “Roseanne” after its lead actress referred to a former advisor to President Barack Obama as a product of the Muslim Brotherhood and the “Planet of the Apes.”
Miller wrote that he “in no way condone” the language used by actress Roseanne Barr, but also asked ABC to consider canceling Goldberg’s show, “The View.” Miller alleged that she has “made similarly outrageous comments about President Donald J. Trump, Vice President Mike Pence, and others in the administration.”
A screenshot of Sid Miller’s Facebook post, which has now been deleted. The fake image on Whoopi Goldberg’s shirt has been edited out by The Texas Tribune. screenshot
“If proven true,” Miller wrote of the photo that had already been conclusively proven false by fact-checking websites, “Whoopi Goldberg’s wearing of a shirt depicting our President being shot in the head is grounds for immediate termination. At present, all I see is hypocrisy and double standards from ABC. As we say in the country ‘what’s good for the goose is good for the gander.’”
Goldberg previously showed her viewers the real picture, in which she’s at last year’s New York women’s march. The shirt read: “And you thought I was a nasty woman before? Buckle up, buttercup.” The photoshopped image made its rounds on the internet last year and was shared on Twitter by Barr Tuesday.
Todd Smith, Miller’s campaign spokesman, told the Austin American-Statesman that neither he nor Miller knew if the doctored photo was real before it was posted to Facebook.
“We post hundreds of things a week. We put stuff out there. We’re like Fox News. We report, we let people decide,” Smith told the Statesman.
Miller has a history of posting fake news to his Facebook feed. In December 2016, a Texas Tribune analysis of a portion of Miller’s social media history identified 10 postings of demonstrably false, misleading or unsupported information.
The View Den Mom Whoopi Goldberg this morning blasted former ABC star Roseanne Barr over one of her morning’s many retweets.
Roseanne Barr spent Tuesday night into Wednesday morning manically tweeting and retweeting after ABC canceled her hit comedy revival over her tweet comparing former Obama adviser Valerie Jarrett to an ape.
Barr first apologized to the many people who worked on the comedy series who lost their jobs. But she also attacked a couple of those same cast mates for their comments on her tweet that toppled the TV empire.
At some point Barr stopped blaming Ambien for her offensive tweet, and, in a lava-like stream of “what-about-it-ism” retweets, began to blame liberal media agenda for her downfall.
Among those re-tweets: a photo of Whoopi wearing a photo-shopped T-shirt with a violent anti-Trump message.
“So here we go again,” Whoopi complained at the top of today’s The View, which also airs on ABC. She showed viewers video of the actual T shirt she wore at the women’s march in New York on January 21, 2017. It bore the message: “And you thought I was a nasty woman before? Buckle up buttercup.”
“Some bonehead photo-shopped a horrific image on the shirt” which Roseanne retweeted, Goldberg blasted, showing the result, except the show pixilated but with the image of Trump putting a gun to his head and pulling the trigger pixilated.
“So this is what I’m going to say, Roseanne. Just because you were caught with your pants down, don’t try to drag other people down with you,” Whoopi scolded. “Because there are times when you got to suck it up cause you stepped in doo.”
The View conservative panelist Meghan McCain joined the chorus, criticizing Barr for “draggging” Whoopi into the story, addding, “We did not do anything.”
Goldberg called it “red meat” adding. “I didn’t fake my shirt. Someone else faked my shirt. But that’s your tweet, that tweet came from you,” Whoopi said, returning to Roseanne. “You did this to yourself.”
Whoopi first addressed the T-shirt photo-shop on the show in April:
Whoopi Goldberg Goes Off on Roseanne for Promoting Fake Meme About Her
Roseanne Barr’s career might be over. And she’s trying to bring everyone else down with her.
The creator and star of ABC’s now-cancelled Roseanne spent much of Tuesday night and Wednesday morning alternating between heartfelt apology and cruel recrimination on the Twitter account that got her into trouble in the first place.
Among the retweets she shared with her followers was one that purported to show her fellow comedian—and moderator of ABC’s The View—wearing a t-shirt that depicted Donald Trump shooting himself in the head along with the words “Make America Great Again.” But the image, supposedly taken at the 2017 Women’s March, had been doctored. In reality, Goldberg’s shirt read, “And you thought I was a nasty woman before? Buckle up, buttercup.”
“Here we go again,” Goldberg said Wednesday morning on The View before debunking the false narrative about herself once more. “Some bonehead photoshopped a horrific image on the shirt and she retweeted this!”
“So this is what I’m going to say, Roseanne,” she continued. “Just because you were caught with your pants down, don’t try to drag other people down with you.” Goldberg added later, “I didn’t fake my shirt, someone else faked my shirt. But that’s your tweet. That tweet came from you. So that’s yours. You did this to yourself.”
In addition to sharing fake memes of Goldberg and her original target, Valerie Jarrett, Barr also retweeted a message that called on ABC to fire The View’s Joy Behar for suggesting that Vice President Mike Pence’s Christianity is a form of “mental illness.” Behar ultimately apologized both publicly and to the vice president, who said he had forgiven her.
As a comedian, Behar said on Wednesday that she tends to defend those who go “under the gun” for making jokes. “We stick our foot in our mouths, I’ve done it many times, I’ve had to apologize many times, but I just felt like this went over the line,” she said of Barr’s racist tweet about Jarrett.
“This was an egregious offense,” Behar added. “Even though I say we all make mistakes—mea culpa—it went over the line, so I can’t defend it.”
In May 2017, comedian Kathy Griffin drew criticism from across the political spectrum when she posed for photographs holding what appeared to be President Donald Trump’s severed head. Soon after, images purportedly depicting actress and talk show host Whoopi Goldberg proudly wearing a shirt with a violent anti-Trump image circulated on social media:
The image appeared on a meme alongside a demand Goldberg be “fired from ‘The View’ and boycotted.” In late May and early June 2017 social media users shared the image and referenced Griffin’s controversy. (Griffin surmised that her career was “over” after the incident, and she was fired from her intermittent position at CNN.)

— kathy maggard powell (@kammyann) May 31, 2017
However, the photograph antedated the Griffen controversy. In an 18 April 2017 video published to the official YouTube channel for “The View,” Goldberg explained that someone had doctored an image of her at the 2017 Women’s March that followed Trump’s inauguration:
In the clip, the original photograph of Whoopi Goldberg was shown alongside the doctored version. In the unaltered photograph of Goldberg, her shirt read “And you thought I was a nasty woman before? Buckle up, buttercup”:
In the April 2017 segment, Goldberg said that despite her opposition to President Trump, she would never wear a shirt like the one in the altered image.
