Time To Arm The Nukes: America Is Coming After Our Cherished National Hero

David Attenborough might be under investigation from the FBI

Look, listen, America: we're sure you're having a grand old time destroying everything that is good and pure in your own country. It's actually quite entertaining, in a perverse, swirling-sense-of-unerring-doom kind of way. But we'd prefer it if you'd leave us out of this particular self-imposed apocalypse, if that's alright?

A little background: speaking before the US Presidential election, the broadcasting hero was asked how he would feel about America choosing Trump – a man who claims that climate change, an issue close to Attenborough's heart, is a Chinese hoax.

Sir David reportedly answered: "We could shoot him. It's not a bad idea," before giggling.

Soon after, Twitter users started accusing him of "incitement to murder" and, according to inews, have tried to make him the subject of an FBI investigation.

Attenborough then told the I that "it was a jocular remark", but we'll have to see whether that will fly the next time he arrives at US border control.
