"Well, when it's time for cocktails," Klein tweeted in French, "cognitive biases seem to have a field day… Beware, then, of them. According to contemporary cosmology, no object belonging to Spanish charcuterie exists anywhere but on Earth."
Though some had understood the joke immediately and played along, many others did not.The original tweet had garnered 11,000 likes and 1,500 retweets, and some of Klein's nearly 100,000 followers were not amused by the deception.
"Coming from a scientific research director, it's quite inappropriate to share this type of thing without specifying from the 1st tweet that it is false information when you know the speed at which a false information," one user commented in French.
Because of the backlash, Klein ultimately apologized on Wednesday.
"I come to present my apologies to those whom my hoax, which had nothing original about it, may have shocked," Klein wrote in French. "He simply wanted to urge caution with images that seem eloquent on their own. A Scientist's Joke."
Klein later told French magazine Le Point that on Twitter, "fake news is always more successful than real news."
