New Twitter CEO called out as his inflammatory 2010 tweet resurfaces

Parag Agrawal, the brand new Twitter CEO, has been hit with racism claims after a 2010 tweet resurfaced wherein he seems to name all white folks racist.

 

Within the tweet shared on October 26, 2010, Parag Agrawal, an Indian-American, wrote: “If they aren’t gonna make a distinction between Muslims and extremists, then why ought to I distinguish between white folks and racists?”

The tweet was apparently quoting comic Aasif Mandvi, who had appeared in an episode of The Each day Present in a phase pitting black folks in opposition to Muslim folks.

 

The tweet resurfaced on Monday November 29, after Agrawal, 45, was named the brand new CEO of Twitter as Dorsey formally introduced he’s stepping down from the corporate. 

 

Reacting to Parag’s outdated tweet, Sen. Marsha Blackburn, a Republican from Tennessee, wrote: “That is Parag Agrawal, Twitter’s new CEO and the one that’s going to be deciding what sort of speech is allowed on Twitter.”

 

Mia Cathell, a information editor for the Publish Millenial, commented that Parag apparently doesn’t know how you can scrub his tweets after the tweet resurfaced.
