Kanter was able to record that video and share it online via his own Twitter account. The video has gone viral since he uploaded it. Will our government look into this and get Kanter back to the states?

An NBA player accused the Turkish government of having “cancelled” his passport in Romania as punishment for his critical views of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.
Enes Kanter, who was traveling through Europe, posted a video to Twitter on Saturday claiming the Turkish embassy cancelled his passport, leaving him stranded in Romania.
“We are in Romania and they said they cancelled my passport by [the] Turkish embassy,” said Kanter, a player for the Oklahoma City Thunder.
“The reason behind it is just, of course, my political views and the guy who did it is, you know, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the president of Turkey.”
Erdogan was just over here in the states overseeing a mob beating not far away from the White House and now this? This man thinks he’s a gangsta politician. He’s been watching too much Godfather movies.
