Former welterweight champion Johny Hendricks called out Fox News for a super weird photoshop job.
Find another model
On Wednesday, ‘Bigg Rigg’ went to his Twitter and pointed out a screenshot of Fox News using his daughter holding a photoshopped grenade.
“Find another model! She’s cute, but she loves cops. Her dad is one @JesseBWatters#FoxNews,” Hendricks wrote on Twitter.

Welcome to Camp ANTIFA.
The Fox News segment that used Henrick’s young daughter was called “Welcome to Camp ANTIFA.” During the segment, Fox News host Jesse Walters said, “Welcome to Camp ANTIFA, where kids learn to check their privilege, hate cops, and lecture you on climate change,” according to MMA Weekly.
Antifa is an anti-racist and anti-fascist political organization that lacks centralized leadership. There is no one group or institution that goes by the name Antifa, nor is there any form of organizational structure that includes those who call themselves Antifa. Rather, ‘Antifa’ is a rallying cry used by many groups engaged in anti-fascist and anti-racist political activity, including marches, letter writing campaigns, community engagement, and mutual help.
Since President Donald Trump’s victory, Antifa has been a hot topic among right-wing, alt-right, and far-right pundits. These people frequently portray Antifa as a monolithic movement that is intent on using violence against traditionalists and the government.
Hendricks daughter was a stock photo model, and the photo that Fox News took and photoshopped was of her holding a tin can. Just weird stuff.
Hendricks won the UFC welterweight title in 2014 by defeating Robbie Lawler at UFC 171, four months after losing to Georges St-Pierre in one of the most infamous title fights of all time. Hendricks was last in action against Paulo Costa at UFC 217 and would retire from the sport a few months later.
Since retiring from MMA, Hendricks has become a full-time police officer for the state of Texas.
