[Was false news] Uruguayan President rejected from international act after being confused with "commoner"

Correction: this news was false. My apologies for the error.

Webguerrillero published today a formal correction: the whole news was accidentally taken from a humor site and they did not notice. Ironically many "serious" media through the world took it as real.

President Mujica at home
The President of Uruguay José "Pepe" Mujica was impeded to attend the inauguration of his Paraguayan colleague Horacio Cartes, after security confused him with a "commoner". 

For some reason Mr. Mujica, who lives a very simple life, without any luxuries whatsoever, arrived late to the inauguration, after the rest of the Uruguayan delegation had already entered the event. Security personnel were not able to recognize him and did not let him enter. 

Luckily the Chancellor arrived then with his credentials and he was allowed in.

Afterwards excuses were issued:
We knew well who was Mujica and that he was very austere... What we did not know was that he was so extremely so. Please put yourselves in our skin, seeing that a plain commoner wanted to enter in a place with so many important people, without accreditation and alone rang all alarms and forced us to impede him access.

You get it, right? There are two kinds of people: oligarchs and commoners, and among all Presidents on Earth, only Mujica (and surely Evo) is like us, commoners.
