Several journalists on Twitter criticized President Donald Trump for pouring an entire box of food into a pond of Japanese koi, with some ridiculously claiming that the amount of food he dumped from a little wooden box could injure the fish.

The news of President Trump reportedly harming “precious koi carp” spread quickly through social media, as more reporters eager to bash Trump ran with the news.

Trump was slammed for improper conduct during the photo-op on his first state visit to Japan until a full video of the incident came out showing that Trump was just doing the same as Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.

“Trump and Japanese PM Shinzo Abe were scheduled to feed koi spoonfuls of food. Until Trump poured his entire box of fish food into the pond,” CNBC reporter Christina Wilkie wrote on Twitter.

Others feared that Trump’s fish-feeding style could start a “diplomatic incident.”

The full video of the fish-feeding photo-op at Akasaka Palace koi pond clearly shows that Abe was the first to dump the box of fish food into the pond.

The journalists were soon called out on their “fake news” story, and New York Magazine/HuffPost contributor Yashar Ali even apologized for his part in posting the misleading story. “I regret the error and apologize,” he tweeted. “Even though I based my tweet on news reports, I should have double-checked..this is on me. ”
