  • Niantic is hosting a 'Pokémon Go&apos AR

Russian trolls posing as Black Lives Matter activists used the fad video game Pokémon Go in their efforts to meddle in U.S. politics, according to a new CNN report. On Thursday, CNN reported that a Russian-operated campaign posing as a Black Lives Matter group used Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and even Pokemon Go in order to provoke Americans and exploit racial tensions. The team over at Niantic will then choose the top ten photos and the winners will be prized with a Pokemon-themed prize pack that includes: a Pokemon GO Plus, an autographed poster by the Pokemon GO team, and Bluetooth earbuds.

According to CNN, the group's Tumblr page included a post showing a Pokémon named "Eric Garner", who died after being put in a chokehold by a officer of the New York Police Department. The Facebook page was one of 470 pages that were removed after the company determined that it was linked to Russian groups attempting to interfere in USA politics.
