The new CEO of Twitter is now under fire after old tweets were unearthed in which he implied all white people were racists.

As The Daily Wire reports:

After Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey announced his intentions to step down from his role at the social media giant, he stated that the company’s new CEO would be former Chief Technology Officer, Parag Agrawal.

Almost immediately after the news broke, one of Agrawal’s past tweets surfaced which critics describe as both racist and indicative of a political bias which is likely to continue under Agrawal’s leadership.

In October 2010, Agrawal tweeted, in quotation marks, “If they are not gonna make a distinction between muslims and extremists, then why should I distinguish between white people and racists.”

Journalist Andy Ngô responded, “Incoming Twitter CEO. Go Figure.” The Daily Wire’s Michael Knowles tweeted, “The new CEO of Twitter, ladies and gents.” Newsbusters’ Curtis Houck added, “That, ladies and gentlemen, is the kind of thing a racist would say.”

Agrawal replaces longtime CEO Jack Dorsey, who announced his resignation as CEO on Monday.
