New York Knicks Basketball Player Facing Four-Year Prison Sentence For Being Critical of Turkish President

New York Knicks center Enes Kanter is facing a four-year prison sentence — in his home country of Turkey.

According to Turkey’s state-run news agency, prosecutors are charging Kanter with insulting President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Twitter.



What did Kanter say?
Kanter has been critical of Erdogan, saying the Turkish president has created a dictatorship and calling him the “Hitler of our century.”

Kanter is also a supporter of preacher Fethulla Gulen, who Erdogan has blamed for a failed military coup in July 2016.
