Turkish Newspaper: “Death toll rises to 50 in bar where perverted homosexuals go!”

pjmedia

Yeni Akit is one of the most infamous newspapers in Turkey. It’s known for being in the tank for the increasingly authoritarian president Recep Tayyip Erdoğan and for its hate speech towards LGBT groups, Jews and Christians. In other words: towards all those who do not share their Islamist ideology. The Islamist journalists and editors are now in the news themselves because they published an article on the terror attack in Orlando with the headline “Death toll rises to 50 in bar where perverted homosexuals go!” Because of the wording and the exclamation mark, many users of social media accuse the newspaper of celebrating rather than mourning the attack on the gay club.
