Stormzy slams Irish newspaper for mixing him up with Lukaku

CONFUSION: Stormzy and Romelu Lukaku

WHILE many of us are fully aware that not all black people look a like, The Herald clearly didn't get that memo.

Stormzy blamed the newspaper after it used a picture of him instead of Manchester United’s new signing Romelu Lukaku in an embarrassing blunder from the Irish publication.

The Grime star took to Twitter after The Herald mixed the two men up writing: “I don’t find none of this funny btw.”

BLUNDER: The Herald Newspaper uses an image of Stormzy on a story about Romelu Lukaku

Stormzy, 23, added: “Don’t wanna sound like the party pooper who missed the joke…”

The paper replied to the performer: “Sincere apologies, we don’t think it’s funny either.”

In an apology on their website Alan Steenson, Herald Editor wrote: “Hands up, we got it badly wrong. Earlier, we made an error with a picture of Romelu Lukaku that wasn’t him. It was Stormy. To be honest, we are totally embarrassed and want to say sorry to all involved and our readers for the error. We will keep our eye on the ball in future.”
