British pair get terror charges over Twitter jokes

Two British tourists were barred from entering America after joking on Twitter that they were going to 'destroy America' and 'dig up Marilyn Monroe'.

Leigh Van Bryan, 26, was handcuffed and kept under armed guard in a cell with Mexican drug dealers for 12 hours after landing in Los Angeles with pal Emily Bunting.

The Department of Homeland Security flagged him as a potential threat when he posted an excited tweet to his pals about his forthcoming trip to Hollywood which read: 'Free this week, for quick gossip/prep before I go and destroy America?'

The pair's luggage was searched for spades (shovels). LOL

While I don't know how Marilyn is doing, but I can say Congress has beaten them to the other objective, by a decade. Roll Eyes

Say goodbye to the tourism industry. Just one more industry destroyed (can I say that?) in Amerika.
