CNN editor mistakes sex toy flag for ISIS flag

However, it turns out that the black and white flag wasn’t actually an ISIS flag, but rather, a flag depicting a variety of monochromatic sex toys.

Lucy Pawle, a senior editor at CNN, was leaving work when she passed through the colourful Pride parade while crossing Regent Street.

According to Pawle, one man stood out from the rest, dressed in black and white and toting a flag which she said was a “very bad mimcry, but a clear attempt to mimic the ISIS flag – the black and white flag with the distinctive lettering.”
