Twitter…a place where “faux pas” is personified.
Twitter users latest foot-in-mouth incident centres around everyone’s favorite, squeaky clean, bachelor boy Cliff Richard.
News broke on Monday of yet ANOTHER Operation Yewtree arrest. This time it was a 72 year old man who was arrested at his London home. We now know that this was a former BBC Radio One DJ Chris Denning. However, Twitter users went straight on to play guess the perv and claimed that the 72 year old arrested was Cliff Richard.
Bill Latham — a pal of the star for more than 30 years — told The Sun: “Cliff has certainly not been arrested. I can guarantee it.
“I would know it and there’s not an ounce of truth in it.
“The whole thing is just rumour-mongering.”
So have you got it? Cliff is innocent. If you thought it was him, we think you should say sorry by going to one of his concerts and you’re in luck because he’s just about to go on a nationwide tour.
