CNN Struggles to Differentiate Between Sex Toys and Arabic Letters

The only thing those “letters” spelled was a pretty good time.

When CNN International’s Lucy Pawle spotted a black and white flag being flown at a gay pride parade in London, she was a little quick to jump to conclusions. Pawle went on air to discuss the incident and seemed absolutely sure this was a poorly made rendition of the ISIS flag. However, upon further examination it was revealed that the flag depicted something quite different. What Pawle mistook for Arabic lettering was actually a collection of silhouetted sex toys. CNN, who immediately ran the headline “ISIS Flag Spotted At Gay Pride Parade,” might be a little embarrassed about this one. You can check out their original segment in the video below.
