Two veteran actors comment about fascism, then targeted and released on probation…

I guess this proves their points. Nearly anyone at my age and older grew up watching comedy films in which Metin Akpınar was one of the main actors. New Turkish elites’ crusade against “old Turkey” continues at all fronts…
A Turkish prosecutor has launched an investigation into two prominent actors over their comments on “fascism,” after President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan publicly complained that he was the target of their “death threat.”

In the wake of Erdoğan’s statement addressing Akpınar and Gezen without referring to them by their names, “You mentioned hanging the president on the rope? Now, you go and pay the price for it”, an investigation has been launched against the actors.
Akpınar and Gezen, against whom the İstanbul Anatolian Chief Public Prosecutor’s Office has launched an investigation due to their statements on a TV program, have been released on probation after their depositions at the Prosecutor’s Office.
