Drinking age hoax spreads in NM

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – KRQE News 13 has received a few calls asking about an article going around social media.

It states the legal age to drink alcohol has gone up from 21 to 25.

But it’s just a hoax.

The Nipsys News allows users to create their own stories.

This story states that the legal drinking age changed this month.

The story has been shared on social media millions of times, but when viewers click on the article, Leonardo DiCaprio pops out and the site reads “We are sorry, but you were tricked. It was just a joke.”

The article is the most popular story on the fake news website.
