With a post on a verified Facebook page under the name of Kristen Stewart- followed by over 800K users- the popular American actress has on Sunday been among social media trends with a photo in the Palestinian scarf, that eventually proved to be fake.

Ahram Onlline checked the original photo in which Stewart appears without a scarf with a necklace around her neck with the same make-up, hear-cut and eye-gaze.

Stewart, 31, best known for her role in the “Twilight Saga” movies, is reportedly out of social media for personal reasons.

The Kristen Stewart Facebook page, which published the fake photo earlier, was created in 2013 under the name of Sean Porter and it has been changed frequently until it was named after hers in 13 May.

"Two years ago, I got this scarf as a gift from one of my Palestinian fans. Now I shocked when I knew that he died by Israelian at,tack," reads the post on the verified Facebook page that added; "Stop killing Palestinian people, Enough Is Enough," ending with two hash-tags; #GazaUnderAttack, #FreePalestine.

The Facebook account is still active while Stewart hasn't commented about the photo or the post until present.
