I hate to break it to you degenerates, but if you were hoping to bring home the gold for “Biggest Fuck-Up” over the weekend, you’ll just have to try again next weekend.
CNN spent its weekend doing CNN things and spent six minutes of air time mistaking a gay pride flag covered in butt plugs and dildos as an ISIS flag.
“An unnerving sight today at a London gay pride celebration: an ISIS flag among a sea of rainbow colors,” reported CNN anchor Suzanne Malveaux.
Lucy Pawle, a CNN International reporter, noticed the flag and shared the pictures during an on-air segment, which is, in my opinion, the best time to be wrong about a terrorist group hanging out a gay pride parade.
@lucypawle the ISIS flag at the Pride parade looked like gibberish because the "text" was actually outlines of sex toys. Obviously satire.

To be fair, the flag does show some semblance to the ISIS flag, except for the gaping reality that it’s not. Maybe someone should let ISIS know that their flag looks like a bunch of dildos and butt plugs. Does anyone know if Dakota Meyer is still available?.
