A video has been viewed and shared tens of thousands of times on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube alongside a claim that it shows Kuwaitis throwing away French products after boycott calls triggered a standoff between France and some Muslim countries over Islam and freedom of speech. The claim is false; the video has circulated in reports about a Saudi supermarket disposing dairy products in May 2020 – months before the calls to boycott French products.
