Rod Stewart says he’s sorry for mocking an ISIS beheading in the desert outside Abu Dhabi, but some outraged Brits think he should pay a higher price.
The video shows Rod, his wife, Penny, and friends climbing a sand dune. One of the friends gets on his knees in front of Rod … who pretends to cut off the man’s head.
Penny posted the video … but deleted it a few hours later, after the immediate backlash started. 72-year-old Rod issued an apology, saying they were “larking about pre-show” and were “spontaneously playing out Game Of Thrones.”
He added, “Understandably, this has been misinterpreted and I send my deepest apologies to those who have been offended.”
Angry British citizens have suggested online Stewart’s Knighthood should be withdrawn.
