A 5-year-old girl in the UK who was performing in a Nativity production on Tuesday was caught flipping the bird at the audience for nearly the entire show.
Ella Legge, dressed as a cherub with a halo and wings, apparently could not wait to show her mom a boo-boo on her middle finger.
Photos of the impish Legge show her clutching her arm, with her middle finger just in front of her face, looking around her hand and directly down at mom, Carla Bovingdon, with a piteous stare. At one point, she even lifts her other arm into the air in a double-bird.
Bovingdon, 33, tells Kennedy News that Legge was bothered by a hangnail — and not telling her entire school to f - - k off.
“The performance was about half-an-hour long, and I would say 70 percent of it she had her middle finger up,” says Bovingdon. “I was thinking, ‘Oh God, Ella please stop.’ Because she was doing it so innocently, I think most people were thinking, ‘Oh, bless her.’ ”
“It was so funny because she didn’t realize what she was doing,” says the marketing professional. “I had to keep mouthing ‘Put your finger down,’ discreetly, but then I just accepted that she was going to be standing there with her finger up.” (Courtesy of nypost.com)
