Irish Journalist Beautifully Points Out The Stupidity Of 'LEAVE EU' Joshua Tweet

Irish Journalist Beautifully Points Out The Stupidity Of 'LEAVE EU' Joshua Tweet
By Mikey Traynor

Regardless of your stance on 'Brexit', we can all agree that some of the stuff you'll have seen on social media in the months since the vote was confirmed would make you fear for humanity.

It's always cringe-worthy when the world of politics attempts to use sport to push it's agenda, but after Anthony Joshua's victory over Wladimir Klitschko in what was one of the most thrilling boxing matches in recent memory, the official 'LEAVE EU' account may well have taken the cake.

Using Joshua's iconic, Ali-esque celebration shot as he stood over the fallen Ukrainian, a tweet emerged predicting that this was a sign for what would happen when the UK pulled apart from the European Union.

And it caused a bit of a stir. It's provocative nature saw many take the bait, and a lot of people were upset, but Conor McNamamara of the BBC knocked it out of the park with his response.

In pointing out how the LEAVE EU account had failed to acknowledge Anthony Joshua's heritage, he exposed the incredible stupidity of the original tweet.

Outstanding.

McNamara's tweet has been re-tweeted in the thousands as many are taking a lot of satisfaction in the LEAVE EU account having it's pants pulled down after what was a ridiculous statement.
