Spanish News Confuses Star Wars With Terrorism



It’s not uncommon for morning news shows to make a blunder, but confusing Star Wars with Al Quaeda? That’s exactly what happened in Spain.

According to this site (in Spanish) the host of the Spanish news show “The Morning” confused the logo for the Rebel Alliance with that of Al Quaeda. They were trying to explain the history of ISIS and how it relates to Al Quaeda, and used the Rebellion logo for that.

The mistake likely came from a record label called “AlQaedas Incorporated”, which used the Rebellion logo. They probably just did a Google image search and used whatever they found on the show. Still, it’s a pretty hilarious blunder.
