Islamic State not massive fans of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo

You missed a cracker...

Just when you thought Islamic State couldn’t get any worse…

It has been reported that IS supporters were threatening to lash anyone caught tuning in to El Clasico on Sunday.

While some may have hoped to catch Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi in action, there was apparently an 80-lash penalty for anyone found watching the clash.


Perhaps they should have threatened insubordinates with having to watch a 0-0 bore draw between Stoke and West Brom on repeat instead.

For any of our IS-supporting readers, it finished 2-1 to Barcelona. If anyone asks…you didn’t hear it from us.
