’50 perverts killed in bar’ how leading Turkish newspaper reported Orlando slaughter – Express.co.uk

Right-wing newspaper Yeni Akit, which has supported Al-Qaeda in the past, broke the news of the horrific attack with the headline: “Death toll rises to 50 in bar where perverted homosexuals go!”

The headline has caused outrage online, with many suggesting the phrase, and associated exclamation mark, suggests the paper is praising the attack rather than condemning it. 

Yeni Akit has long supported President Erdogan’s AKP party which are known for conservative views.
