Man Hold Up!– This could be CNN’s biggest blooper ever. On Saturday, the network ran an entire segment with an alarming message, claiming an ISIS flag had been spotted at a gay rights rally in London. Turns out, that wasn’t even close to the case. The supposed ISIS flag was in fact a parody, showing images of sex toys in place of Arabic script. The segment ran for approximately six minutes, intensively analyzing the flag and zooming in on the subject waving it. The flag was spotted by CNN’s international reporter Lucy Pawle, who called in during the segment to talk about her alarming discovery — and said she even reported it to police. WATCH THE VIDEO…
CNN’s mistake has now gone viral, and since then, the network has removed the video from its website.
