Six photos of Hong Kong pro-democracy activist Denise Ho in handcuffs have been shared repeatedly on Facebook and Twitter in September 2021 alongside a claim she was "arrested". But the photos have been shared in a misleading context: they show Ho being arrested during mass pro-democracy protests in 2014. As of October 14, 2021, there have been no official reports that she was arrested in September 2021.
