Kay Burley threatens troll with her son’s and friend’s aubergine

By Media Mole

Sky News presenter Kay Burley gets a lot of shit on Twitter. Today was no different, as some gammon called Clive (and they are always called Clive) told her he hoped she was jumping off a mountain “without a harness”.

But Burley’s response was rather unusual. “Wonder how brave keyboard warriors would be if they were face to face with my 6’ son and his mates…” – AUBERGINE EMOJI.

Yes, the aubergine. The big aub. The aubermensch. The pictorial shorthand for… an erect penis.

Whatever you’re trying to say there Kay, we hope it frightens the trolls.
