A Group Of Beard Enthusiasts Were Reported To The Police Because Someone Thought They Were ISIS

Whoops!

Posted on October 12, 2015, at 12:22 p.m. ET

The Bearded Villains is a collective of men who just LOVE beards. It has chapters all over the world.

The group has a flag which is passed around the many chapters. This weekend, it was the Swedish division's turn to pose with and care for the flag.

While posing with the flag at Brahehus castle, they were approached by police.

According to Swedish media, police were alerted to the group when their signature flag was confused with ISIS's.

Andreas Fransson told reporters that once the police realized the mix-up, everyone found the situation very funny.

“We had a laugh with the police and they left,” he said. “It was a surreal experience.”

BuzzFeed News has reached out to the group for comment. You can view more pictures of their magnificent beards here.

A BuzzFeed News investigation, in partnership with the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists, based on thousands of documents the government didn't want you to see.
