Dumb Teen Buys Confederate iPhone Case Instead of UK FlagS

Meet a girl with the wrong iPhone case. She enjoys normal teen things like Starbucks, snowboarding, and hanging out with friends. She also doesn't know the difference between the Confederate Flag, universal symbol of bigotry, and the flag of the UK. And then she tweeted it.

A couple weeks ago, our proud American friend posted her rebel iPhone case with a mirror selfie.

Then she started to realize her error.

The UK and Confederate flags share little in common despite coloring and an X shape. The latter is synonymous with one of the worst periods in American history. She wouldn't want anyone to think she's racially prejudiced, right?

The lesson here, don't be an idiot, and probably just don't get a case for your iPhone to begin with. [Twitter via @hermit_thrush]
