Louise Mensch Told A Woman Of Colour She Isn't A Woman Of Colour On Twitter

The woman's response was perfect, 'Ethnic enough for you?'

UK Conservative politician and author Louis Mensch is something of a keyboard warrior.

In that she basically lives on Twitter, lambasting people for one thing or another and weighing in on just about every topic you might dream up. She now even runs a website seemingly dedicated to this sort of political commentary and posturing.

But her fingers may have gotten the better of her this time.

Earlier this week, some protesters from Hacked Off - an organisation which tries to hold press accountable for not acting legally and with integrity - apparently gathered to protest the government consultation on section 40 of Leveson Inquiry.

Louise saw this and tried to make a little jab at the group.

Her dig didn't quite go to plan though, since one of the protestors was indeed a person of colour, and had a Twitter account.

Hannah Mian pointed herself out, and we all hoped it would end in a swift apology.

Alas.

Mensch took it upon herself to look through Hannah's photos to prove to Hannah that she, herself, Hannah, was actually white.

Interesting tactics Mensch.

Hannah then trawled her own data and found a nice 'ethnic' photo of herself.

And if that wasn't enough, this random tweeter upped the ethnic ante with this beautifully subtle Photoshop edit.

That's right, it's Hannah, in a sari, in front of the Taj Mahal, with her mango mimosa getting nicked by a painted elephant.

Hannah very much appreciated it.

Unfortunately, this isn't the first time Louise Mensch has potentially got things a bit wrong when putting the world to rights on her mobile.

Lest we forget the time she thought Vice journalist Clive Martin was talking about Brexit when he was talking about the closure of Fabric.

Classic.
