Westboro baptist church accidentally hates the Ivory Coast

The notorious Church made a big mistake with their 'God Hates Ireland' campaign

The Westboro Baptist Church have accidentally declared their hatred of the Ivory Coast, after printing the Irish flag backwards on their signs.

The religious group released a video which featured prominent members of the notorious 'church' attempting to Irish dance on an Irish flag while a high-octane voice sang about Ireland going to hell.

The video was posted following the historic 'Yes' landslide vote in the Irish marriage referendum, making Ireland the first country in the world to legalise same-sex marriage by popular vote.

In subsequent postings the group can be seen to carry custom signs which say 'God Hates Ireland'. However, the flag on the signs is orange, white and green - the Ivory Coast flag.

This viral Vine shows one confused Westboro Baptist Church member struggling to hold the Irish flag 'upside down' to show it's "in distress".
