British teenager banned from America for life after sending Barack Obama abusive email
A British teenager has been banned from America for life for sending Barack Obama an abusive email, in which he calls the President a p***k.
Luke Angel, 17, insulted Mr Obama while drunk after watching a programme about the 9/11 attacks on the U.S.
Angel was reprimanded by police on both sides of the Atlantic after firing off the message to the White House.
The FBI intercepted the message and contacted police in the UK who went to see Mr Angel at his home in Silsoe, Bedfordshire. The college student is now on a list of people who are banned from visiting the States.
The teenager told the Bedfordshire On Sunday newspaper that he had sent the email after watching a TV programme about September 11. When asked about the ban, Luke 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.
