Skittles photographer says he was a refugee, doesn’t approve of Trump Jr.’s message

“I was a refugee from the Turkish occupation of Cyprus,” says the guy who took the photo of the Skittles that Donald Trump Jr. used in his toxic tweet.

Richard Irvine-Brown & Patrick Evans, BBC News:

David Kittos, 48, from Guildford, UK, woke up to find an image he had posted to Flickr in January 2010 had become embroiled in a political controversy.

“This was not done with my permission, I don’t support his politics and I would never take his money to use it,” Mr Kittos told the BBC.

“In 1974, when I was six-years old, I was a refugee from the Turkish occupation of Cyprus so I would never approve the use of this image against refugees.”
