A fake courtroom sketch of an adonis-like Sam Bankman-Fried has gone viral on social media — and the actual court artist is not impressed.

The image of Mr Bankman-Fried looking like a Brad Pitt-Tom Brady hybrid first appeared on social media on Monday, as the founder of bankrupt crypto exchange FTX was being grilled in the witness box by prosecutors.

“Why does courtroom sketch SBF look like he spends his time playing quarterback & breaking hearts when he’s not stealing customer funds?” asked @NetCapGirl.
