The Babylon Bee is arguably the most popular satire site for conservatives and Christians, but the liberal-leaning fact check site Snopes doesn’t seem to be in on the joke.

Snopes has “fact checked” the Babylon Bee’s satirical articles dozens of times, most recently when the Bee poked fun at Erica Thomas, a black Georgia politician who had to walk back her claim that a man had yelled racial slurs at her in a grocery store. The Bee’s satirical version stated “Georgia Lawmaker Claims Chick-Fil-A Employee Told Her To Go Back To Her Country, Later Clarifies He Actually Said ‘My Pleasure.” This was the 38th time Snopes has gone after the Babylon Bee. This time, however, the Bee has retained a law firm and threatened legal action.
