Twitter user misspells US president's name as 'Barraco Barner'

A British beautician is laughing off a global Twitter storm after she mistakenly misspelt US President Barack Obama as "Barraco Barner", and appeared to think he was president of the UK.

Tweeting about Ukraine crisis, Gemma Worrall, 20, posted a message saying: "why is our president Barraco Barner getting involved with Russia, scary."

She found herself at the centre of global attention with social media users branding the message a new low for 'dumb Britain'.

Within 12 hours Gemma's comment had been retweeted almost 7,000 times and she had received messages from all over the world calling her 'stupid' and 'dumb'.
