Meme of naked man accidentally included in FBI docs for Capitol rioter case

The internet meme of naked man sitting on a bed accidentally made its way into FBI documents for a case against a Capitol rioter.

The image, which is known online as “wood sitting on a bed,” was photoshopped into the background of a picture from the January 6 attack on the Capitol building and later given to the FBI as evidence.

The original image includes several rioters, including QAnon Shaman Jacob Chansley and Brian McCreary, a pizza delivery driver from Massachusetts, standing in the Capitol building in front of a framed photo of late Kentucky Senator Henry Clay.

The doctored photo made its way into official FBI documents.

In the doctored image, the photo of Clay is replaced by the “wood” meme.

The image was given to the FBI for the case against McCreary, 33, who is seen in the photo wearing a blue surgical mask, according to The Sun.

It somehow made its way into the federal complaint against McCreary, which was filed Wednesday.

The meme of naked man became increasingly popular over the past year and was regularly photoshopped into pics of unrelated events.

McCreary has been charged with two counts of illegal entry and three counts of violent entry and disorderly conduct on Capitol grounds.

The doctored image was reportedly handed over to the FBI by a co-worker of McCreary’s who identified him in several photos from inside the Capitol.

Boston.com reported that McCreary reached out to the FBI himself shortly after the January 6 riots – when Donald Trump’s supporters stormed to Capitol – but claimed he only entered the building to take photos and videos.

He allegedly tried to claim he was more of an observer, there to document the violence.

However, people who know McCreary reportedly told the FBI that he regularly expressed his political views at work – a Domino’s Pizza in Massachusetts.
