CNN Confuses Sex Toy Flag for ISIS Flag in London Gay Pride Parade: Watch Now

Talk about a big difference! On Saturday, June 27, CNN confused the meaning of a flag in London’s Gay Pride Parade in a big way. British correspondent Lucy Pawle snapped a photo of the black and white flag in the midst of the colorful parade, citing it as being an ISIS flag. 

“This man — quite distinctive from the rest of the crowd, he was dressed in black and white where as everyone else was brightly colored — this man dressed in black and white was waving what appears to be a very bad mimicry, but a clear attempt to mimic the ISIS flag,” Pawle said during a segment on CNN. “If you look at the flag closely, it’s clearly not Arabic, in fact it looks like it could be gobbledygook.”

The “gobbledygook” Pawle was referring to was actually a series of drawings of sex toys, not a symbol for the terrorist organization. 

CNN removed the coverage of the segment from its website on Saturday after it aired.
