Twitter’s new CEO Parag Agrawal is under fire for a 2010 tweet where he talked about “white people” and “racists.”
Agrawal wrote in quotes “If they are not gonna make a distinction between muslims and extremists, then why should I distinguish between white people and racists.”
Michael Knowles tweeted “The new CEO of Twitter, ladies and gents.”
Here are some of the responses:
Do Italians count as white people in this instance? Asking for me… not a friend
