IMPORTANT UPDATE: AS OF MAY 31st, 2016, THIS FB POST HAS BEEN DELETED BY THE PM’S PAGE AND SOME COMMENTATORS HAVE BEEN BANNED FROM HER PAGE.
For the first time since the Bodnariu children were confiscated by Barnevernet, prime minister Erna Solberg issued a statement in the form of a comment on her FB page. The comment is authentic since it contains the blue check mark issued by FB to personalities who have authenticated their high profile official FB accounts. She wrote in response to Bodnariu supporter Monika David:
“This is an ongoing police investegation on violence against children.”
It turns out that the prime minister got a lot more attention with her comment than she bargained for…
Hundreds of FB users have descended on the post with hundreds of comments and reactions explaining the ignorant and callous nature of the statement.
