Dustin the Turkey is being cancelled on Twitter, and it is hilarious

If you tuned in to RTE Does Comic Relief on Friday night you would have seen a few familiar faces on the telly. Nostalgia was high, as the show reunited Ray Darcy, Zig, Zag and Dustin for a one off special of 90’s kids show, The Den.

In classic The Den style, Zig, Zag and Dustin were their usual rowdy selves, as they teased Ray, as well as the guests they had on which included Niall Horan and Sir Bob Geldof.

The 1D star performed his latest single, ‘Black and White.’ The Mullingar native, also shared that he had always wanted to appear on the show and had “called and texted in on multiple occasions” but he never made it onto the ‘Talent on the Telly’ segment.

The 1D fan looked delighted to be on at last with Zig and Zag as he said; “Look Mammy, I’m on the telly!” Of course Dustin is quick to slag everyone, and even Niall Horan couldn’t get away with it as, mid-performance, he yelled “we’re cutting you off after a minute, we wanted Harry Styles!!”

Viewers in Ireland found this hilarious, as we are well used to Dustin’s sense of humour, and Niall too would be well aware it was only a bit of craic. This is what Irish humour thrives on.

It seems Niall’s American fans however, didn’t quite get the joke as a thread popped appeared online slamming the puppet, with the hashtag ‘Defend Niall Horan’ trending on Twitter. The original tweet has now been deleted, but even the likes of Doireann Garrihy and James Kavanagh got involved to share how hilarious it was.

Many Irish people were quick to chime in, assuring people it was only a bit of fun, and that Niall would have known exactly what he was getting into by going on the show.

So far Niall has yet to respond, but when he does we’re pretty sure he’ll be on the side of the turkey.
