Public Call for Dancing Mob All Over Turkey on 6th of June, Thursday

Everyday I'm Capuling. This is one one the latest trends in social media. After the Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdoğan called the protesting citizens "plunderers", there has been ongoing wave of rags about it, as people put "çapulcu" in front of their Facebook names as a sign of appropriation for the protests. Following that there was another creative joke, a video about how to conjugate the verb "to chapul". The penguins in the video are a reference to CNN Türk which was broadcasting a show about penguins while the riots were going on, which has become a symbol for the biased stanced the Turkish media has been taking on the protests. https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=ajm3xFfg3-Y#!
