- Sonja appeared to realize she had waded into a sensitive area.
- — @sweden / Sonja (@sweden)Tue, Jun 12 2012 12:59:38Im sorry if some of you find the question offensive. Thats was not my purpose. I just don't get why some people hates jews so much.
- — @sweden / Sonja (@sweden)Tue, Jun 12 2012 13:04:06I thought it was a good idea to ask the question when so many well educated people all over the world can answer. But no. Bad idea.
- These tweets were not the only ones Sonja shared from the @Sweden account that followers found offensive. A few hours earlier, she uploaded a photo-shopped image of what appears to be Freddy Mercury, deceased lead singer of Queen, with the caption, "hungry gay with aids."
