In a quite hilarious turn of events, CNN dedicated an entire segment yesterday to a purported ISIS flag spotted at London Pride by one of their correspondents.
Lucy Pawle was in London covering the LGBT march and was very concerned when she spotted the flag.
There was just one issue – it was actually a banner featuring dildos, butt plugs and various other sex toys.
Raising her suspicions about a man wearing black carrying the flag at the event, Pawle said:
If you look at the flag closely, it’s clearly not Arabic. In fact, it looks like it could be gobbledegook. But it’s very distinctively the ISIS flag.
I seem to be the only person who has spotted this, and nobody seems to be raising any questions or pointing it out.
I expect she’s pretty sorry she mentioned it now. CNN has since removed the video of the segment from its website and are no doubt feeling very embarrassed indeed.
I doubt ISIS are too pleased about the comparison either…
