Washingtontime.com– Actor Kal Penn says he “can’t stop laughing” after the Russian ambassador to the U.K. tweeted a photo of a laughing “terrorist,” which turned out to be a shot from a scene in the movie “Harold & Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay.”
Alexander Yakovenko said early Wednesday that the U.S. had threatened “to stop helping Iraq against ISIL if Baghdad asks Russia for help,” referring to the Islamic State terror group.

Mr. Yakovenko was roundly mocked on social media for the gaffe. The tweet was still active Wednesday afternoon.
Mr. Penn is the former White House associate director of public engagement.
