Lord Alan Sugar Thinks Taylor Swift Has A Swastika Tattoo After Seeing It On 'The Onion'
| Last updated
Lord Alan Sugar appears to think Taylor Swift would get a swastika tattooed on her face, after mistakenly believing that an article from satirical site The Onion was legit news. I've said it before and I'll say it again, 2018 is bloody weird.
The Apprentice host shared an article from The Onion with the headline: "Taylor Swift Grateful Kanye West Controversy Taking Heat Off New Swastika Tattoo" adding: "Eh I don't get this. Can someone explain is she making a statement or what?"
I mean, if she were it would be quite the statement, but, of course, Swifties need not worry because of course the 'Shake It Off; singer hasn't had a massive swastika tattooed on to her face.
It's not even a particularly good Photoshop job. Good enough to convince Lord Sugar, though, which is all you can really ask, isn't it?

Shortly after posting, he was flooded with comments from people telling him that it was a joke article and that she wasn't making any 'statement' - however, alarmingly there were a bunch of responses from people who had apparently joined the 71-year-old in taking the article at face value.
One wrote: "It defies me, Lord Sugar! I can only say that if there's some supportive message in there, it's lost on me! Thoroughly tasteless." While another said: "With that young lady I wouldn't know. But I've got better things to do and look at that. As always attention is the game. And she's getting it."
I can't comment on how much attention Swift is after, but I think it's a safe bet to assume it stops short of getting Nazi symbols permanently etched on her skin.
This isn't the first time the billionaire has made himself look a bit out of touch on social media - remember when he tweeted asking what these strange silver cylinders were, only to be told they were the discarded canister of nitrous oxide - or Hippy Crack?
Bless him - there's something really lovely about Alan innocently tweeting this sort of stuff, isn't there?
Anyway, nice try Alan, but you're still not the front runner when it comes to 71-year-old men posting bizarre tweets.
That's right, isn't it, Donald?
