Man with ISIS tattoo on his lower lip loses job

A NEW York man has lost his job after showing colleagues a tattoo of the word ISIS under his lip.

CNN reports Kirk Soccorso was fired by Home Depot over the tattoo but had no idea about its connection to Isis the terror group; his tattoo in fact refers to his ex-girlfriend who just happened to be named after an Egyptian goddess.

"I feel a little lost," Soccorso told CNN. "It was a good paying job."

Home Depot meanwhile said the New Yorker was sacked from his job as a tool demonstrator (nope, us neither) not "just based on the tattoo".
