“This Palm Sunday, remember to endorse support for those who have given voice and representation to Mexico’s poor“, Specifies the publication which seems to come from the Ministry of Culture and has 2,180 interactions on Twitter.

While reviewing the official Mexico City Ministry of Culture website, we found that has a different logo as a profile picture than the one that appears in the post with incorrect information.
As you can see in the following picture, currently uses cherry and gold colors on a white background —like the federal government’s graphic identity—while in the disinformation screenshot the logos appear white on a green background.
At least since August 11, 2021, before the revocation process began, the capital addiction has uploaded the cherry-and-gold-hued photograph.
On the other hand, the name that appears in the publication with erroneous information is “Secretaría de Cultura CDMX”, while the name of the official page is “Secretaría de Cultura de la Ciudad de México”.

In conclusion: Although government officials broke the law by promoting the revocation process, this screenshot allegedly showing the Mexico City Ministry of Culture is fake.
