18-year-old Itir Esen has lost the title of beauty Queen of Turkey because of the publication on the social network Twitter. She also faces a prison term of one year.

About it writes on Thursday, December 7, the news Agency Reuters, citing Turkish Dogan publishing.

The Prosecutor of the Istanbul court found the girl guilty of «insulting a representative of one of the layers of society» – after the three officials went to court with a complaint against her «tweet».

The newspaper reminds that in July of this year, the Essen ironically commented on the anniversary of the attempted coup in Turkey, wrote in his microblog: «15 July, I celebrated the day of remembrance of the martyrs and as they bleed». Later this tweet has been deleted, and her account on the social network Twitter deactivated.
