Bulgaria: Today's Quote: You, Stupid Blonde Photo:

 “Where are you, stupid blonde, who accused Turkish police of using disproportionate force?” asked Melih Gokcek, Ankara’s combative mayor on his Tweeter profile Wednesday.

He referred to the recent turmoil in Baltimore caused by police brutality and the reaction of the US State Department spokeswoman, Marie Harf. She had previously expressed criticism over the civil unrest in the Turkish capital.

“According to the blonde girl, the government’s reaction during the Gezi Park protests were worrisome, but when it comes to your country, is it normal to declare a curfew,” Mr. Gokcek wrote in a separate post.

Ms Harf, in her turn, stated at a news conference that she will not ''dignify'' the opinion with a response, the New York Times reported.
