The Drudge Report published a peculiar image on its homepage yesterday, featuring the Star Wars character Jar Jar Binks peeking out over a set of photoshopped ballistic missiles.

The headline read Iran Rattles, indicating that the story was meant to be taken seriously.

The large image linked to a sombre story from Yahoo about Iran saying it would not yield to useless threats from Donald Trump, who was also called an inexperienced person.

How exactly Jar Jar Binks plays into the Drudge Report s take on the story is still unclear.

The absurd image was first noticed by Twitter users, who promptly called out the site for not checking the image thoroughly enough.

Weesa don't think @DRUDGE bothered to check the featured image on their front page.
