Netanyahu backers share post claiming porn star joining defense team

A post making the rounds on social media groups supportive of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu claims that “successful American lawyer Johnny Sins” has agreed to take on Netanyahu’s cases pro-bono and even donate millions of dollars to needy Israelis, according to the Seventh Eye media watchdog.

The only problem: Sins (born Steven Wolfe) is not a famous American lawyer, as claimed by the post. He does screw people for a living, though. He’s a porn star.

One version of the post shared by a woman on Facebook whose feed is mostly made up of far-right conspiracy theories, is shared hundreds of times, and garners nearly 1,000 comments, many of them marveling over Sins’ largess and Netanyahu’s ability to land such a hotshot at his table.

Sins retired from porn last year, and it’s pretty unlikely he is practicing law in Israel, or plans to donate millions of dollars to Israeli families. You never know, though, and perhaps the man Cosmopolitan called “a sexy Mr. Clean,” will in fact soon be filing briefs for the prime minister.
