Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-Massachusetts) performing a pagan ritual in the nude during college is fake news. There is no truth to the story as a fake news web site used an unrelated image.
Where did this fake news originate? In June 2017, a blurry black and white image showing a group of nude people dancing around a circle appeared with text claiming that it shows Warren participating in the pagan ritual. You can see the image below; however, the text is false.
Photo of Elizabeth Warren at a nude pagan ritual. A roomate of Elizabeth Warren’s from college released this photo of her and a bunch of her “pagan friends” dancing around a tribute to the gods of wind and fire:
The roomate, a hairdresser from Methuen named Francesca, said Warren was “flat-chested and awkward but always looked like she was having fun.” She added that marijuana, magic mushrooms, peyote and LSD were common at the rituals.
Where did this text originate? The text included with the image was originally published in a hoax article on TheLastLineOfDefense.org, which has been known many times in the past to post factually inaccurate stories. TheLastLineOfDefense.org does carry a clear disclaimer:
DISCLAIMER: America’s Last Line of Defense is a satirical publication that may sometimes appear to be telling the truth. We assure you that’s not the case. We present fiction as fact and our sources don’t actually exist.

In other words, if you believe this crap you’re a real dumbass.
Here are some examples of people sharing the meme on social media.
