LONDON: North Korea has written an official letter of complaint to Britain over a London hair salon’s advert implying leader Kim Jong-un has a bad hairstyle, the Foreign Office confirmed.
The Stalinist state has failed to see the funny side of a discount haircuts advert featuring Kim at the M&M Hair Academy in Ealing, west London.
The poster featured a large picture of Kim with his distinctive short-back-and-sides hairdo and the slogan: “Bad hair day? 15% off all gent cuts through the month of April.”
British police intervened after North Korean embassy officials paid a visit to the salon and told hairdresser Mo Nabbach to take down the “disrespectful” poster from the window.
Besides turning up in person, the North Korean embassy in London has also written to the Foreign Office demanding action.
The poster had been taken down by Wednesday. — AFP
