Update: The BBC is running a photo of McKellen wearing the same T-shirt as everyone else attending the protest. The photo circulating on the Web appears to have been doctored. The new photo now appears here.

A photo of Ian McKellen taken at an antipope rally in London over the weekend is making the rounds on the Web, doctored to read “I’m Gandalf and Magneto. Get Over It.” The shirt is a reference to his
Oscar-nominated Lord of the Rings role and his role in the X-Men
trilogy.

McKellen actually wore the same shirt as other protesters: “Some People Are Gay. Get Over It.”

McKellen’s photo is currently making the rounds on Twitter and Facebook.
