Seventeen year old Briton, Luke Angel, has been banned for life from the United States today after the FBI ‘intercepted‘ a drunken ‘email to the White House full of abusive and threatening language.’ Reportedly, the limey Brit called the president ‘a pr–’ in the midst of an angsty teenage 9/11 truther rampage, but he doesn’t fully remember it.
Luke, ever the typical teenage tough guy, says ‘he doesn’t care’ but his parents don’t seem to be ‘very happy.’ Hopefully he doesn’t get grounded, or lose his allowance on top of it…
Still, should we really ban a teenager from a country ‘for life’ because, if unfortunately, the ability to send heartfelt email rant to a respected world leader was only a mouseclick away? And would we, or perhaps do we respond to a similar teenage rant housed domestically?
After all how can one ban someone from partaking in one of life’s most treasured contemporary activities: getting wasted and sending messages to people you regret in the morning?
Now all this kid needs is a Twitter account. With a media whoring career on the rise, he’s one step closer to achieving every tween’s American Dream of ‘endlessly retweetable’ twittering.
