In recent media fails, global news corporation CNN has aired a segment dedicated to a wrongfully spotted ISIS flag at a London gay pride event. Correspondent Lucy Pawle thinks she’s struck breaking news as she reports on the high flying collation of sex toys.
“If you look at the flag closely, it’s clearly not Arabic,” Pawle said. “In fact, it looks like it could be gobbledegook. But it’s very distinctively the ISIS flag.”
What Pawle described as “gobbledegook” is in fact a flag of printed buttplugs, dildos and other sex tools in black and white ink.
“I seem to be the only person who has spotted this, and nobody seems to be raising any questions or pointing it out,” she said, still alone in her discovery.
