It was later revealed that CNN's initial report that the flag was ISIS's was wrong and that it was nothing but a parody of the flag.
An anchor of the news channel, in fact, devoted a breaking news segment clarifying that the "ISIS flag" in question was composed of the silhouettes of sex toys, which included shadows of dildos and butt plugs.
In an embarrassing confession, CNN producer Lucy Pawle admits that the lettering on the flag was not Arabic, but "gobbledygook".
Call it a brutal comparison or a sarcasm, the point may have already reached the Islamic group. The only worry now is they do not end up targeting gay parades.
