"[...] were apparently forced [...]".
What makes this apparent? Certainly not the FB photo accompanying the article (it doesn't show a thing --- which, BTW, is not an invitation to jokes). It might be the video that was mentioned but as it has been deleted it's hard to check up on that. All that remains is somebody having made some bold, unverified & unverifiable statement on a social media that's now recast via a news outlet.
I kind of like Thaiger's light approach to reporting news and building a community rather than just an audience around that, but I hope this kind of article doesn't make it into the template (of note: articles like this one are dangerously close to being considered as "entering false information into a computer system")
