MP’s racist tweet
Finns Party MP deletes offensive tweet
Finns Party MP Veikko Vallin caused a social media stir over the weekend after tweeting a picture of daycare children minded by a hijab-wearing staff member.
Tabloid Iltalehti reported that he called the teacher’s clothing “inappropriate” for the profession. The MP told IL that he posted the picture because the outfit worn by the teacher was “radical-looking”. He refused to reveal whether he took the photo himself.
After facing a social media backlash, Vallin took down the tweet saying his only mistake was forgetting to blur the faces of the people identified in the image. He said he still stands by his critical view of the clothing.
