'Shut Up' Chavez Ringtone Hit in Spain

King Juan CarlosThe king of Spain's recent undiplomatic outburst at the Venezuelan president has become a ringtone hit across Spain.

An estimated 500,000 people have downloaded the insult featuring the words "Why don't you shut up?", generating a reported 1.5m euros ($2m).

King Juan Carlos asked Hugo Chavez to "shut up" at a summit in Chile last week after the president said Spain's ex-PM Jose Maria Aznar was a "fascist".

Companies selling the ringtones have avoided legal problems concerning breach of the king's image rights by using an actor to voice the line.
