London Woman To Appear in Court for Her Tweet

Bahar Mustafa, a student diversity officer of University of London, is facing charges in North-East London after allegedly tweeting the hashtag #killallwhitemen. She was initially accused of racism after asking white men  not to attend a students’ union meeting intended for ethnic minority women and “non-binary” attendees.

The UK Guardian reports:

The 28-year-old from Edmonton, north-east London, faces two charges. One is sending a communication conveying a threatening message between 10 November 2014 and 31 May 2015. The second is for sending a grossly offensive message via a public communication network between 10 November 2014 and 31 May 2015.

She is set to appear in the court on November 5, 2015. Bahar has denied that her initial request for white men to stay away from a union meeting was racist or sexist, and said she had received rape and death threats.

Watch what you tweet guys, remember, what you post online can and maybe used against you in the court of law.
