Hitler spoof on Twitter sparks outrage

entertainment Updated: Jun 30, 2011 13:02 IST

British boxer David Haye has provoked further outrage by posting a link on Twitter to a spoof Nazi film featuring Adolf Hitler and littered with obscenities.

Using a clip of the movie Downfall about Hitler’s last days in his bunker in Berlin, it fakes a raging conversation about Haye’s world heavyweight title unification fight with Wladimir Klitschko here on Saturday night.

The sub-titles show Hitler using the word n***** and swearing numerous times in a tirade about Nazi fears that Klitschko, the German-based Ukrainian, is about to be knocked out.

HitlerAccording to the Daily Mail, it is unclear if the spoof, which was put together three months ago, has been compiled by anyone close to Britain’s WBA world champion.

But the timing of its exposure to the wider world by Haye appears to be deliberate.
