A photo of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and US President Joe Biden has been shared in multiple posts on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram that claim it shows the Turkish leader “bowing” to his US counterpart. The photo has been shared in a misleading context. It actually shows Erdogan was standing up from his seat — not bowing — as he gave Biden a fist bump during a NATO summit in Brussels in June 2021.
