While Stewart insisted he and his friends were re-enacting 'Game of Thrones', the video, filmed in a desert, looked unfortunately like an Isis-style execution.
Veteran rock star Sir Rod Stewart has apologised for the offence caused by his recent ‘Islamic State-style execution’ video filmed in a desert, claiming that he was actually re-creating a scene from ‘Game of Thrones’.
The 72 year old was seen in a since-removed video on his wife Penny Lancaster’s Instagram account pretending to slit the throat of a companion, who was positioned kneeling in front of him, on a sand dune in Abu Dhabi. He said that it was the result of him “larking about” with some of his friends, and didn’t realise that it would be “misinterpreted”.

Oh dear Rod Stewart! A fan is suing the aging crooner over injuries he received whilst attending a concert in 2012 at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas.
Looks like Rod's aim was off that night
According to Reuters, Californian electrician Mostafa Kashe is suing Stewart for $10,000 plus attorney fees following a broken nose he received when Rod kicked a football into the audience at his concert. A keen football fan (he supports Celtic and Manchested United), this is apparently something Stewart does on quite a regular basis, but this time it didn't go down so well. Kashe was treated for his injuries at the venue, but claims he has suffered lasting physical and mental damage, as well as having to cut short a family holiday and miss work as a result of his injury, and having a permanently impaired sense of smell.
