Turkish actress receives death threats over pronouncing genocide


Turkish actress Pelin Batu pronounced the word genocide when speaking
about 1915 events carried out in the Ottoman Empire at a
Haberturk-aired program, bringing the program co-authors Murat
Bardakchi and Erhan Afyoncui into fury.

The Turkish actress appeared to be in hazard due to her expression,
Hurriyet reported. Batu said, she received death threats over
pronouncing the word genocide.
Note that with her mother being of Albanian decent, Pelin Batu is the
daughter of a resigned Turkish diplomat and former parliamentarian
Inal Batu.
