The Yanks have a sense of humour, that’s obvious from the television they produce. But if you even joke about hurting the great nation that is the US of A and you will be crushed. Or at least refused entry.
Something they don’t get though is British slang. Something two young Brits, Emily Bunting and Leigh Van ‘Jihad’ Bryan, found out the hard way.
A couple of weeks before visiting the states Leigh ‘death’ Van Bryan tweeted the following:
“@MelissaxWalton Free this week, for quick gossip/prep before I go and destroy America.”
Yep. DESTROY. Now what Leigh ‘three-wheel’ Van Bryan actually meant was that he was going to get drunk and party in America to a level of wreckage to his body and not to actually cause any harm to the great nation.
Homeland Security saw the Tweet, tracked it back to Leigh ‘drink-driving‘ Van Bryan and refused him and innocent Emily Bunting entry… After detaining them for 12 hours, questioning them and torturing them (possibly).
“The Homeland Security agents were treating me like some kind of terrorist. I kept saying they had got the wrong meaning from my tweet but they just told me ‘You’ve really f***ed up with that tweet, boy’,” Bryan told The Sun.
Questioning went along the lines of “Why do you hate America?” Now Leigh Van’pire’ Bryan said he didn’t which is a lie. Everyone outside America hates them a little bit, plus he let’s not forget he tweeted that he wanted to destroy it. Suspicious.
Not only did Leigh Van ‘The Life of’ Bryan threaten the safety of millions of people but he even said that he will desecrate one of America’s most beloved dead celebrities:
Both Brits were checked the pair for spades.
“The officials told us we were not allowed in to the country because of Leigh’s tweet,” Bunting told The Daily Mail. “They wanted to know what we were going to do… They asked why we wanted to destroy America and we tried to explain it meant to get trashed and party… I almost burst out laughing when they asked me if I was going to be Leigh’s lookout while he dug up Marilyn Monroe.”
Emily Bunting and Leigh ‘failed it’s MOT’ Van Bryan were deported and taught a lesson.
Don’t mess with America.
