Britons tweet #ResignCameron after Panama Papers admission

British Prime Minister David Cameron admitted Thursday that he had owned shares in his late father's Panamanian trust and by Friday morning, #ResignCameron was Twitter top worldwide Twitter trend.

'May all your biscuits be broken,' reads a #CurseDavidCameron tweet

British Prime Minister David Cameron admitted Thursday that he had owned shares in his late father's Panamanian trust and by Friday morning, #ResignCameron was Twitter top worldwide Twitter trend. 

It seemed like every front page in the U.K. was plastered with headlines about Cameron's admission in an ITV interview. 

This parody Twitter account was among those driving the hashtag to trend

A scene from the British comedy Father Ted came to mind for many

A tweet from Cameron's account from May 2015 — about doing the right thing and paying your taxes — started being passed around, prompting a scathing Frank Underwood reaction GIF from the account for the Netflix show House of Cards

Amid the calls for Cameron's resignation were some hilariously creative oaths against the prime minister posted using the hashtag #CurseDavidCameron.
