While the world focused on the coronavirus, Turkish social media users discuss that who farted on a live broadcast?
Television viewers have seen all. Drunk anchors forgot what to tell, children raided the room where their father seriously talks about global politics, reporters were chased by different types of animals... And on Sunday, in Turkey, one of the contributors farted on the live broadcast, and now all country discusses that.
Journalists Nedim Şener and Gürkan Hacır were together with the security advisor Mete Yarar and Adil Gür, the director of a polling company, on Habertürk channel, and discussing the surprising resignation of the Interior Minister Süleyman Soylu when the fart happened.
While Yarar was talking, that sound was heard, and it was as clear as a bell.
Nobody at the studio reacted at first, but social media is ruthless, and it didn’t take very long for people to share the video on Twitter. After the fart became a hot topic on Twitter, the host of the program, Veysi Ateş, made an announcement about it. “Normally, our studios give a frame about the self restrictions to our guests,” he said. “But when they join us from their homes, those incidents like sneezing and coughing can happen.”
It wasn’t a sneeze or cough, but everybody understood what he was talking about. And now, Turkish Twitter users discuss who farted. None of the contenders made a comment about the topic, but a lot of people believe that it was Adil Gür, who looked around suspiciously after the fart.
Hashtag #HabertürkteKimOsurdu, (Who farted on Habertürk?) is a trending topic in the country, and people are eager to find the answer. Coronavirus pandemic, the not-accepted resignation of the Interior Minister, shaky economy; Turkish Twitter users do not care about those. There is only one question on their mind, who farted?
