Ayatollah Trolls Obama, U.S. over Freddie Gray Protests


As we’ve pointed out multiple times here at Mediaite, Ayatollah Seyed Ali Khamenei takes great pleasure in using his Twitter account to troll the United States on everything from race relations to torture reports, and the Iran nuclear framework.

Early Sunday morning, the Supreme Leader of Iran again tweet-stormed the U.S. on race relations, specifically commenting on the ongoing protests in Baltimore over the death of Freddie Gray in police custody by using the hashtags #FreddieGray, #BlackLivesMatter, #MikeBrown, #EricGarner and various others.

Khemenei accused U.S. police officers of killing innocent people, and called it “ridiculous” that black men are killed by police even though President Barack Obama himself is an African-American. “They celebrate a day for abolition of slavery but such crimes are committed against the blacks,” he tweeted.

Earlier this month, Khamenei tweet-stormed the Iran nuclear deal, highlighting his specific doubts about the particulars of the outlined agreement.
