Breitbart News apologized for using a photo of soccer star Lukas Podolski on a story published Friday about a gang allegedly smuggling migrants to Spain, which had no relation or connection to Podolski.
However, if worldwide news website Breitbart is to be believed, the former Germany global has a sinister side to him. In fact, the photo is from 2014 World Cup in Brazil and depicts a moment of levity when the German team was enjoying a day off at the beach.
"Breitbart London wishes to apologise (sic) to Mr. Podolski", the note read.
Podolski is neither Spanish Police, nor a member of a crack gang, nor a member of a Spanish police crack gang, nor a migrant on a jet ski.
The 32-year-old Podolski, who now plays for Japanese side Vissel Kobe and made his final global appearance in March, has been in touch with his lawyer.
Right-wing publication Breitbart News has appeared to have made a serious error, seemingly accusing German footballer and World Cup victor Lukas Podolski is involved in human trafficking.
Mere days after Steve Bannon returned at the helm, the far-right website Breitbart seemed to identify German global soccer star Lukas Podolski as some sort of human trafficking victim. "We wish Mr Podolski well in his recently announced worldwide retirement". "Our lawyer is already involved", Touihri said, according to The Guardian.
