Trending swastikas on Twitter have Jewish communities in the U.S. and Israel, and decent human beings everywhere, outraged. According to The Times of Israel, the hashtag “#卐卐卐” yielded more than 63,500 tweets on Sunday alone.
Most the tweets are stupid wordplay, many copy and pasted repeats, but nonetheless horribly offensive.
Jewish groups told The Times of Israel they were outraged by the phenomenon, and the Simon Wiesenthal Center said it would seek to have the symbol barred from Twitter.
