Michael Moore Sparks Backlash After Tweeting Apology and Plea to Iran in Farsi

Activist filmmaker Michael Moore has made waves once again on social media, this time tweeting an apology to Iran.

The message appears to be directed to their Supreme Leader Khamenei.

According to Google translate, the message is:

With deep condolences for the acts of violence on our behalf by a man that the majority of Americans have never voted for, I want you not to respond violently, but to act bravely instead, and let the American people refrain from power.

Iranian American reporter Yashar Ali blasted Michael Moore’s attempt at diplomacy, writing:

If you want to truly appeal to the Supreme Leader — which is impossible because he is deeply mistrustful of Westerners — I would start by having a native speaker/professional translator handle your translations. This is poorly written.

Aidin Sadeghi replied:

You are absolutely wrong sir. was a really big monster and we really appreciate of what president @realDonaldTrump did. Believe me sir you are wrong. Don’t believe the main stream. we people of Iran are hostage by Islamic republic in our country.
