Gay UK priest accidentally sends Twitter followers to a porn site

Reverend Richard Coles Twitter followers were sent to a porn website instead of a picture of Jesus, in an unfortunate Twitter mistake this morning (18 April).

Gay British priest Richard Coles had an embarrassing Twitter mishap this morning when he was tweeting a series of Easter related images for Good Friday.

Coles was tweeting different pictures to represent the 14 stations of the cross to those who celebrate Easter, each one was a modern take on each station.

However, after he tweeted his first picture of a young man early this morning a few of his followers reported being sent to a porn site instead of the pictures.

Coles, a former pop star in the 1980s with band The Communards, has over 57,000 followers on the social networking site, who were quick to tell the Church of England priest the link was not quite right.

‘something wrong with link, starts with pic above then goes to Localslappers!!’ said Gibson Lis.

Follower Angie K was also sent to the same site.

‘clicked on this and got sent through to horrible porn site :-(ʼ

Twitter user Snippetygiblets also had the same problem.

‘Clicked to open the link and it went to a dreadful porn site. Please check it out :(ʼ

Coles rectified the link and tweeted an apology to his followers.

‘If you keep getting directed to porn instead of Jesus here you might try me on facebook where I think the risk of that happening is minimal’ he said.

Coles continued to tweet safe links to the rest of the pictures.

However, many of his followers saw the funny side to the situation.

‘he works in mysterious ways!’ said follower Woody.

The Times newspaper columnist Caitlin Moran tweeted the priest too.

‘Well, you are having quite the morning’ she said.
