U.N. rights boss condemns “spreading hatred through tweets”

The top U.N. human rights official condemned “populists” who spread “hatred through tweets.”

“There are the populists – political hooligans who through their incitement – which is the equivalent of hurling racist insults, throwing bottles onto the field, attacking the referee and, as we saw yesterday, spreading hatred through tweets – seek to scramble our order, our laws,” U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein said in a speech in Geneva.
