Campbell exposed the hoax and called those that believed it "sad," mimicking Trump's signature tweet sign off.

The photo is also five months old and Samara Weaving once shared it on her Instagram page.

She also showcased the scene from the series, Ash Vs. Evil Dead on Starz, in which she looked as if she were beaten up back then as well.

"Conservative Nation" has since deleted the tweet.
