KKK activity spotted in Texas turns out to be a reenactment
An alleged spotting of Ku Klux Klan members in Texas over the weekend set some Twitter users off.
Word of the sighting quickly spread to Twitter when someone uploaded a picture of people in what looked like Ku Klux Klan regalia on the Goatsman's Bridge in Denton, TX.
Many expressed their outrage and shock on social media, but it was soon revealed that the spotting wasn't what it looked like.
Apparently, the people spotted on the bridge were actors reenacting a scene for a television show that will air on the Travel Channel.
The bridge is known for it's dark history as the place where the KKK targeted Oscar, a black goat farmer.
"The KKK had a problem with that, of him being quite successful. The legend is they hung him from the bridge and came back to check on him and his body was gone," ghost hunter Becky Vickers told KDAF.
Vickers issued an apology to those disturbed by the spotting: "No doubt about it, it's bad timing. I am sorry, no one was meant to be offended in any way. We're just trying to tell a story and that's all there is to it," said Vickers.
