They've only gone and bloody called him British.
The one thing that's guaranteed to attract the ire of many an Irish person on Twitter is referring to one of our own as British - as the person in charge of the Huffington Post's social media accounts has found out over the last 24 hours.
Here's the Tweet that did the damage:

The reaction was, as always, completely over the top.

@HuffPostUKEnt You wouldn't include a Dutch or French artist in a 'Best Brits' list, why include someone that is Irish?

Won't somebody please think of the 800 years of oppression!?
Anyhow, The Huff Po Po have come out now and apologised for the whole debacle.
Let's move on in life.
