Sir Rod Stewart Apologizes for Mocking Terrorist Beheading on Instagram

This is why you can't give old folks a social media account!
You all know, Rod has a soft-spot in my heart....and in my soul.

According to TMZ
 Sir Rod (and my family's favorite singer) apologized for mocking an ISIS beheading in the desert outside Abu Dhabi.
The video shows Rod, his wife, Penny, and friends climbing a sand dune. One of the friends gets on his knees in front of Rod ... who pretends to cut off the man's head. Penny posted the video ... but deleted it a few hours later, after the immediate backlash started.

The 72 year old issued an apology to The Guardian saying, From re-enacting the Beatles’ Abbey Road crossing to spontaneously playing out Game Of Thrones, we were simply larking about pre-show. 
Understandably, this has been misinterpreted and I send my deepest apologies to those who have been offended.
The scene posted on the 'gram is eerily similar to the many ISIS videos that have circulated on the web.
Some Brits are livid by this video and want Stewart's knighthood taken away from him.

Stewart performed in Abu Dhabi as part of his current world tour.
