Internet is full of jokes and memes on various issues; some memes make us laugh while several others compel us to think but there are few which are used for spreading hatred and we should stand against them.
The micro-blogging site Twitter is also a great platform to post memes and one meme which was promoting racism was going viral on Twitter. The meme had a photo of Sansa Stark, a character of Game Of Thrones which is played by actress Sophie Turner.
The text written on the pic was,
“White people are the product of 50,000 years of evolution. Do not destroy our genetic legacy by race mixing.
Do it right! Date and marry white!”
While the caption with which the meme was shared read, “Purity In Race and Culture”
The tweet has been deleted and Twitter has also suspended this account.
But before deletion, it was noticed by the actress and she decided to bring an end to it, she retweeted the image and wrote, “Ew. Please don’t use me to promote racism.”
Here’s her tweet:
Ew. Please don’t use me to promote racism. https://t.co/u2bftRCbXy
