HOUSTON -— You’ve probably seen it by now: the split screen image that compares the similar facial features of actor LL Cool J and suspected cop killer Chris Dorner.

It’s not hard-to-believe, but the image is Photoshopped.

Every few minutes on the social network Reddit, someone shoots down the myth that Dorner, who is still being hunted down by police, looks like LL Cool J.

Some say the image is offensive and distracts from the reality that an alleged murderer is still on the run.

A second, unaltered split screen image is also going around the Web in hopes it will dispel the altered image.
