“Ash vs. Evil Dead” star Bruce Campbell says he’s setting the record straight after a conservative Twitter account co-opted a photo of a bloody makeup test for one of his co-stars.

A Twitter account called Conservative Nation on Monday tweeted a photo of an apparently bloodied woman along with the note: “Here’s what happened to female Trump supporter when she met ‘peaceful’ and ‘tolerant’ liberals.”

Campbell tweeted Tuesday the photo is of actress Samara Weaving, who appeared in several episodes of the Starz series. He adds: “Check your facts, folks.”

The original tweet from Conservative Nation remains posted. It’s unclear who’s behind the account.

Weaving says she’s horrified her image “is being used for conservative propaganda.”
