An infographic showing how to make 'Bernie Sanders Glowsticks' has been doing the rounds on Facebook, Twitter and Tumblr.

It appears, however, to be instructions for a bomb which explodes and releases chlorine gas.

According to BuzzFeed, the dangerous recipe - aimed at Bernie Sanders supporters - was first posted on a messaging board, not unlike 4Chan.

The original poster and people on the thread now seem be sharing it maliciously.

Ponychan

One poster wrote: "If we can gas even one Sanders supporter, we've done our job as Americans".

1. Incompetent Telegraph writer: NOT "Bernie trolls", but people trolling Bernie supporters. . . nt

A competent writer could easily have written something like:

Trolls try to trick Sanders supporters into blowing themselves up with fake dangerous glowsticks

It's clearer and takes fewer letters.

3. This is not new. The chlorine bomb "prank" is a regular on 4chan

 

Giving it a Bernie spin is just an update. The weird thing to me is seeing it come from ponychan.

9. I decided to go have a look. Haven't been there in a while

 

Seems a decent place... except for the anon board, which appears to be a Trump swamp.

As you do on Anon boards, I guess.

12. Many, I would assume. In some places it's the only option.

 

In others, it's the cheapest option for those on a fixed income or unemployed.

We're not all latte-sipping trust-fund intellectuals and academia

14. It is somewhat difficult to read some of the comments here without hearing the comments in Bernie's

 

voice -- especially when his face is to the left of the comments.

I applaud the sound of Bernie in the written words!

Go Bernie!!!
