Rod Stewart apologizes after staging a mock ISIS-style beheading in the Abu Dhabi desert
Musician Rod Stewart performed a mock beheading in the Abu Dhabi desert that some think looked a little too much like ISIS.
According to BuzzFeed, the washed up British pop-star swore that he was attempting to reenact “Game of Thrones” and not the international terrorist group.
“From re-enacting The Beatles Abbey Road crossing to spontaneously playing out Game Of Thrones, we were simply larking about pre-show,” he said in a statement. “Understandably this has been misinterpreted and I send my deepest apologies to those who have been offended.”
Stewart’s wife, Penny Lancaster, posted a video of the incident on Instagram and it was later deleted, but not before being captured and uploaded to YouTube by others.
