Nicola Sturgeon Brilliantly Shut Down This Male Journalist's Comment About Her Clothes

Telt.

Posted on

David Blevins, Sky News' Ireland correspondent, noticed that Northern Irish first minister Arlene Foster, Scottish first minister Nicola Sturgeon, and UTV journalist Tracey Magee had similar suits.

Burned.

@NicolaSturgeon Lucky the junior doctors aren't striking today, because he's going to need some treatment for that burn!!!

The other man in Sturgeon's first tweet, Ireland's equality minister, Aodhán Ó Ríordáin, seemed surprised by his inclusion.

Well that was unexpected.... https://t.co/2ZF9rqKSJX

But Sturgeon reassured him his suit is lovely.

@AodhanORiordain @skydavidblevins sorry Aodhan - yours was first (and nicest) photo I found. And it is a nice suit! Hope you are well!

And Blevins has regretted causing an "international incident".

Well that's the last fashion report I do. It appears to have sparked an international incident. 😂#JacketGate
