Responding to criticism from individuals on social media, Nenshi wrote: “Of course it’s lame. That’s why it’s funny.”

Meanwhile, Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor recently listed his home for sale with a price tag of $4.495 million (nearly £3 million).

The modern-style property was built in 1966 and is situated in the Beverly Crest neighbourhood of Los Angeles, California. The five-bedroom house includes “a sound-proofed media studio, retracting French doors that open the kitchen to a dining patio area, a balcony with a fireplace, an illuminated stone wall, an infinity edge pool, a lawn and an outdoor fireplace”.

Reznor originally purchased the house for $4,187,500 in 2007.
