By Cortney O’Brien
CNN is under fire for having hired a writer who posted several times on social media that he believes the world needs another “Hitler.”
Social media users demanded that the network respond after discovering the tweets from one of its freelance contributors, Adeel Raja, who has written dozens of pieces for the outlet.
After some digging, it turned out to be one of several messages Raja has posted praising the Nazi leader.
“The only reason I am supporting Germany in the finals – Hitler was a German and he did good with those Jews!” Raja wrote during the 2014 FIFA World Cup. Raja last had a CNN byline on Sept. 16, 2020. He still lists his affiliation with the network on LinkedIn.
“Hail Hitler!” he wrote the following day. Twitter users shared screenshots of the messages.
