Play your magnificent football, Amedspor, HDP former Co-Chair Selahattin Demirtas said. “Leave us the political extensions of those white Taurus campaigners”

Imprisoned Kurdish leader Selahattin Demirtas posted a message of support for Amedspor FC on Twitter after the club suffered a racist campaign in an away game with Bursaspor on Sunday.

"You keep your head up as always, Amedspor, and play your magnificent football," Demirtas said.

Demirtas also denounced Bursaspor fans w”aving the poster of a white Renault station wagon, “Taurus model,” a type of car known to have been widely used in covert operations of state forces in 1990's to abduct and disappear Kurdish political activists, and the poster of notorious Mahmut Yildirim - codename Yesil - who went missing after he has been accused of murdering many Kurdish political activists in extrajudicial killings

The hashtag "Beyaz Toros" ("White Renault Station Wagon") has become trending in Twitter after the game.
