In recent days, a picture of the head of the Catholic Church, Pope Francis, wearing a large white puffer jacket has been circulating on social media. The 86-year-old Pope looks stylish and his fashionable clothes have received many comments. There’s just one problem – this picture isn’t real.

The images were generated by Midjourney, an AI that generates images based on text prompts, and were posted to Reddit on March 24 by an artist who goes by the name u/trippy_art_special.

There is also viral video, where AI has given the Pope bold dance moves.

Online culture expert Ryan Broderick has called the image of the pope the first true case of artificial intelligence disinformation on a mass scale. The problem actually started just a few weeks after the Midjourney update, which greatly improved the output standard.
