Russian ambassador tweets photograph of a ‘rejoicing terrorist’… unaware it is a scene from Harold And Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay

The Russian ambassador to the UK has confused a character from the comedy film Harold and Kumar with that of a ‘rejoicing terrorist’ in a tweet criticising U.S. foreign policy.

Alexander Yakovenko tweeted the photo of actor Kal Penn – who played one of the title characters in the film Harold and Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay – at 9.30pm last night.

Alongside the image of a bearded Penn wearing a turban, he wrote: ‘U.S. threatens to stop helping Iraq against ISIL [ISIS] if Baghdad asks Russia for help.

The terrorists must be rejoicing.’
