  • Bloomberg Quicktake: Now published this video item, entitled “Turkey’s Tourism Video Sparks Outrage Amid Lockdown” – below is their description.

    A video promoting tourism in Turkey amid the pandemic has caused an uproar on social media for showing tourism employees wearing masks that read “Enjoy, I’m vaccinated.”

    The video, in English, was published Thursday on the social media accounts of official travel guide Go Turkiye linked to the country’s tourism ministry and was taken down later that day without explanation. It aimed to promote travel to Turkey as a “safe haven” for foreigners but instead, critics interpreted the ad’s message as Turks being subservient to tourists.
