It's not been a good week for our Education Secretary. And if there's one thing UK politicians should know it's Twitter will not let a slip up be brushed under the carpet easily.
After mistaking rugby player Maro Itoje for football star Marcus Rashford, Gavin Williamson has left us all with our heads in our hands - the result of some extreme second-hand cringe.
Thankfully social media is always on hand to get through these terrible news stories with a few jokes and memes.
Even Maro Itoje got in on the action, tweeting: "Due to recent speculation I thought it was necessary to confirm that I am not Marcus Rashford… And whilst we are here my name is not Mario either!! Just a simple Maro Itoje will do…
"Marcu… I mean Maro Itoje."
Our favourite joke on the subject, however, was from Twitter user Mark Worgan who posted a picture of the Conservative MP and a spaniel with the caption "Gavin Williamson fondly recalls the time he met Geronimo the alpaca..."
We can't help but laugh.
