Ladies, want to join Daesh? They'll give you Nutella and kittens according to CNN

American news channel CNN believes Nutella and fluffy kittens are actually the way to a women’s heart for Daesh militants. 

In a bizarre news broadcast from the news organisation on Wednesday, Daesh reportedly uses the hazelnut spread, pictures of kittens and emojis to allure female recruits.

“ISIS is talking online about jars of Nutella, pictures of kittens and emojis,” CNN presenter Carol Costello said. “They want people to believe their life on the battlefield isn’t so different than yours. They actually eat Nutella and I guess they have pet kittens.”

The allegations were immediately mocked across social networks as expected.

“Oh please we recruited half of our staff with kittens and nutella,” tweeted Vox editor Max Fisher.
