A British teenager claims he has been banned from ever entering the US after sending an offensive email to the White House directed at Barack Obama.
Seventeen-year old Luke Angel expressed his views on America’s president after watching a television programme about September 11 attacks on New York.
A Bedfordshire Police spokesman said they had contacted the man after being alerted by the Metropolitan police.
Officers visited Luke Angel at his home in Bedfordshire, where he admitted to sending the email, but claimed that he could not recall his exact words.
“I don’t remember exactly what I wrote as I was drunk. But I think I called Barack Obama a pr***. It was silly. It is the sort of thing you do when you’re a teenager.
“The police came around and took my picture and told me I was banned from America forever,” said Luke Angel.
He added: “I don’t really care, but my parents aren’t very happy about it.”
