Bernie Sanders Glowsticks is a viral hoax image aimed at tricking supporters of the 2016 Democratic presidential primary candidate Bernie Sanders into making chlorine bombs by providing false instructions for making homemade luminescent light sticks.


On March 8th, 2016, Tumblr[4] user defense-of-the-gathering posted an image purportedly offering instructions to make "Bernie Sanders Glowsticks," along with a warning that it would "release chlorine gas which can kill you" (shown below). The image falsely advises readers to combine alcohol and chlorine tablets in plastic bottles to make a glowing liquid, which would actually cause an explosive reaction when mixed together. While the it is unclear where the image originally surfaced, the Tumblr post contained a tag suggesting that it was discovered on Facebook. Within two months, the post gained over 89,600 notes.
