An American journalist, who writes for the Huffington Post, launched into an insane pro-North Korea tirade on Twitter–and refused to back down, even as he faced a wall of criticism from just about everyone.
The controversy started when journalist Dan Arel said he didn’t “claim any moral superiority of the DPRK [Democratic People’s Republic of Korea, better known as North Korea]” because “by contrast, how is the US better?”
After Twitter users expressed their shock and began to point out that of course life just about anywhere on the planet is better than life in the most brutally-repressive regime on earth, Arel doubled-down, tweeting: “Tell me, how many DPRK citizens are homeless right now? How many lack healthcare? How many are in prison (per capita)? Now compare this to US numbers. I’ll wait.”
