A prominent and verified Twitter activist is calling for the cancellation of Martin Luther King Jr. Day and for his statues to be taken down and replaced with Malcolm X. The activist, who goes by the handle Syrian Girl, also calls MLK and Rosa Parks racist.

Syrian Girl refers to King as a racist and Zionist and adds a quote from King that reads: “Israel must exist and has the right to exist, and is one of the great outposts of democracy in the world.”

She then follows up the tweet by saying, “The only reason he'd say is if people don't think palestinians matter.”

Syrian Girl describes herself as a geopolitical analyst and counter-terrorism.

One user commented, “Last time I checked Israel definitely was the only truly democratic country in the Middle East! Turns out he’s right!”

Another said, “Lets just cancel everybody and start fresh”

On Sunday, Syrian Girl also called out Rosa Parks saying she was a “racist zionist supremacists.” The user even included the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter in the post.

One user responded, “LOL. Good luck getting BLM to support that.”

This comes as many activists are vandalizing statues and calling for their removal and "cancellation" of historical figures after the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police on May 25, 2020.
