Former South Carolina governor and current presidential candidate, Nikki Haley, has come under scrutiny following her recent social media post.

The post, which featured two messages of support for her campaign against Trump in the Republican primary, has been met with skepticism and criticism from online users.

On Thursday evening, Haley's social media account shared two messages. The first, allegedly from a supporter named "Mary A.," read, "I want to encourage Nikki Haley to keep pressing on!!! We need a competent and committed leader to stay the course in the bid for the presidency." The second message, supposedly from a "Michael B.," stated, "PLEASE DO NOT GIVE UP YOUR FIGHT!!! In a world that's become crazy with strife, we need a level-headed conservative leader to navigate us through the insanity."

However, eagle-eyed users were quick to identify inconsistencies in the messages. One of the messages appeared to be written in an unsent email box, with the header of the box reading "new message." The other message, seemingly hand-written, was identified as a digital font designed to mimic handwriting.

Responding to the post, one user advised, "Hit send next time and change up the font once in a while," highlighting the unsent email in the screenshot. Another user, commenting on the supposed hand-written note, pointed out, "All the letters are the same, this is a digital font."

Further skepticism was expressed by users who questioned the authenticity of the messages. One user stated, "These are not real, like, they are clearly made. You have someone sending an email ‘To: Niki Haley’. That's not how emails work." Another user incredulously asked, "Is this broad really faking her own fan mail? Holy hell...these people."

The controversy even drew comparisons to Jussie Smollett's hate crime hoax. One user quipped, "What in Smollett is this, are you serious?" The Daily Wire’s Matt Walsh humorously responded to the situation, "Wow those are really inspiring messages. I just received this fan mail today. It’s so great to be appreciated!" The Hodge Twins also chimed in, stating, "Y’all got some dumb*sses running your social media, wtf."
