An Ealing hairdresser who used a picture of popular and dapper North Korean leader Kim Jong-un with the caption “BAD HAIR DAY?” to promote a discount offer has complained to the police that he was visited by “threatening” officials from the North Korean embassy.
The officials reportedly ordered Mo Nabbach to take the poster, which showed Kim’s modern and stylish short back and sides, down because it was “disrespectful” to their leader. Nabbach says he politely advised them they were in England rather than North Korea and to call their lawyers. However he did remove it for a while, and then put it back up again when customers told him to, on the basis that England was a democracy.
The police, who also received complaints from the Kim heavies who visited, have said that no offence had been committed.
