Nigel Farage has unknowingly been duped into reading out a drug dealer’s product advertisement.

Someone decided to take full advantage of this and get him to read out something with a hidden message, and he wasn’t the first to trick the GB News presenter either.

Nigel addressed the camera saying: “Wagwan ackees, shout out to my pluck ace of Asia, certiest plug around.

“Get your drops loaded fast, bring you barks and nations, cuts always on time, serious yoot, not gonna lie to you man.”

The clip which has been shared on TikTok with the caption ‘Nigel doing drops’.

TikTokker @themosterinn posted a reaction video, where she said: “I have just been made aware that Nigel Farage has a Cameo and you’ll never guess what people are using it for…

“Drugs dealers are using Nigel Farage to advertise their wares and I don’t think he knows.”

One commented: “Him getting paid to say things he doesn’t know about is his entire brand.”

Another questioned it, saying: “He’s an adult, he knows what he’s doing just to put more money in his pocket.”

One person was just loving the video: “It’s a thing of beauty. Like a sunset on the beach, or a mountain landscape. Wonderful.”

This isn’t the first time the 57-year-old has been tricked.

He was conned into reading a greeting supporting the IRA by jokers who targeted him in the same way.

The former politician is seen raising his drink and saying ‘up the RA’ in a clip on the Cameo video-sharing platform.

The message was sent to Brian Ó Céileachair after his friend Aidan Hart paid £73 for Mr Farage to read out a congratulatory birthday greeting.

“This message is for Brian Ó Céileachair, brexiteer,” Mr Farage says in the short clip.

“I hope you have a great birthday and this comes from your good friend Aidan,’ he continues before raising a cup of coffee to give a toast.

“Now, it’s a bit early in the day so all I’ve got actually is coffee, but I hope you enjoy a few pints with the lads tonight.”

He then says “up the RA!” before taking a sip.

The phrase is known to be one of ‘support or encouragement of the Provisional Irish Republican Army’, although it is not widely used.

Farage responded to the video, telling Mail Online : “If I saw ‘up the RA’ I would have looked at that as something very innocent, and wouldn’t have even known there was an implication to it.

“A lot of messages that I get are friends sending each other messages with their own little jokes or their own little words which I have to judge – and of course I reject some if they are crude or offensive.”

He also said he would have never said the slogan is he’d known it was in support of the IRA.
