First, media mogul, reality TV star and all round neoliberal tyrant Donald Trump took the bait of retweeting a picture of Fred and Rose West, the notorious serial killers, after a 'fan' requested the action claiming their now deceased parents were big fans.
And now Billy Ray Cyrus has fallen for similar lulz, after another troll exploited America’s ignorance of the biggest shit-pieces our small island produces. Miley's dad was unfamiliar with the iconic white hair and cigar puffing face of Jimmy Saville, so he RT’d an image of him thinking it was a fan’s grandfather. The country singer/his intern is yet to realise what he’s done and is proudly displaying the pic. But then making a big fan’s year on their birthday IS a nice feeling.
