Nope, US should be ashamed.

Making jokes that could be easily misconstrued to be about terrorism and digging up dead people on the internet right before entering the US? Sounds like a good idea. /s


And PLEASE, TheSun, if someone was caught making such comments before going to Britain, they would ABSOLUTELY be detained.

And they made no joke about terrorism learn to read, its slang for getting drunk/wasted as for the digging up dead people was a line taken from family guy.

It doesn't matter, they should have been smart enough to realize how their comments could be misconstrued. I DID read the article.

If I said I was going to "end" Britain (let's say that was slang for getting wasted in that location, but only used in the states) and posted a quote from V for Vendetta (that regarded blowing up the parliament) without quotations, I wouldn't be shocked to get detained upon arrival at Britain.

And the US Officials need to understand that not everything means the same they should be smart enough or trained to see slang terms etc when sticky there noses in and reading peoples tweets etc.

The US government monitor social networks because terrorist normally share their information on public open social networking sites /s
