Russia Today Reporter Deletes Account After Backlash For Tweeting Memes Making Light Of Stalin Regime's Atrocities

By Vanessa Nix Anthony

Russia Today reporter, and former Miss New Jersey United States 2015, Sameera Khan, has deleted her Twitter account after attracting a hefty backlash for posting memes that made light of Stalin and the atrocities of his prison system. 

The pair of tweets, which have since been deleted along with Khan's entire Twitter account, listed the "benefits" of Stalin's gulags—labor camps that were active in the former Soviet Union from 1930 to 1955 where many people died.

Screenshots of the tweets on Khan's page were captured and reposted by journalist Ian Bateson.
