Fake interview with Michael Schumacher – level 1

26-04-2023 07:00

A German magazine publishes a fake interview with Michael Schumacher.

Michael Schumacher is the seven-time Formula 1 world champion. In 2013, he has a skiing accident. He hurts his head. Nobody sees Schumacher since that time. His family looks after him.

AI creates the interview. The magazine puts a picture of a smiling Schumacher on the front page. The headline says ‘Michael Schumacher, the first interview’. The magazine apologizes to Schumacher’s family. The editor ends his job.

Schumacher’s family does not say any information about his health. They are planning to take legal action against the magazine.

Difficult words: fake (not real), apologize (to say that you are sorry), editor (the person who corrects and changes texts or articles before they appear in a book or magazine).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.

What legal action do Schumacher's family plan to take against the magazine?
