Twitter incident

After the ?szöd speech, and after the 50th anniversary commemorations of the Revolution of 1956, during which the police brutally attacked peaceful protesters at a Fidesz rally, on Twitter, Deutsch wrote: "There are vile people. There are madmen of ill-will. There are disgusting stinkers. There are loathsome faggots. And there is Gyurcsány."[7][8] In an interview with HVG,[9] Deutsch acknowledged his words about Gyurcsány. On July 27, he tweeted:[10] "Who the fuck is Thomas Melia?" This remark was widely condemned by liberals and socialists.[who?][] Commenting on his remarks, Deutsch called them humorous, a kind of standup comedy.[11]
