British Teen Banned From US for Insulting Obama10:16 - Tuesday 14 September 2010 - In Category UK News
A British teenager has been banned from entering America for life after sending Barack Obama an abusive email.
Luke Angel, 17, from Silsoe in Bedfordshire, was criticised by US and British cops for sending a drunken email to the White House, which described Obama as a ‘prick’.
The message was intercepted by FBI agents who alerted UK police about the offensive email.
College student Luke is now on a list of people who are banned from visiting the States.
The teenager told reporters he had sent the email after watching a TV programme about September 11.
He said: ‘I don’t really care. My parents aren’t very happy about it.’
‘The police who came round took my picture and told me I was banned from America forever.’
A Bedfordshire Police spokesman said: “The individual sent an email to the White House full of abusive and threatening language.
‘We were informed by the Metropolitan Police and went to see him. He said, “Oh dear, it was me”.’
