Apologize now Ano Turtiainen, the Finnish MP who mocked George Floyd’s death

by , under Enrique Tessieri

Finnish Perussuomalaiset (PS)* MP Ano Turtiainen’s tweet mocking George Floyd’s death is a disgrace. Still, even a worse shame is that he has not apologized to George Floyd’s family, #BlackLivesMatter movement, and also People of African Descent in Europe and Finland for the tweet.

The only matter that appears to have concerned Turtiainen is that his tweet wasn’t good for the PS’ image and that his career as a dark humor comedian and politician came down in flames.

Apoogize now, Ano [1] or is it Año?

People like you are a threat to society and an even greater one in parliament.

Meanwhile, Prosecutor General Raija Toiviainen is planning to investigate Turtiainen’s tweet, according to Demokraatti. The police announced earlier that it would not carry out an investigation about the former PS MP’s tweet.

George Floyd’s death could be compared with a modern-day lynching. Politicians, like Ano Turtiainen, who attempt to show their “dark humor” are members of the social media lynch mob. Source: Migrant Tales.
