Rajasthan HC stays FIR against Dorsey for poster controversy
Twitter co-founder and CEO, Jack Dorsey held a roundtable discussion with a group of women journalists in India. A picture of the event surfaced in the media where Jack Dorsey was holding a poster presented to him by one of the participants. The poster read "Smash Brahmanical Patriarchy" and turned Twitter into a battleground of interpretations.
At the height of the controversy, Twitter issued a statement explaining that Dorsey was given the poster by an anti-caste activist and was not holding it as any sort of endorsement of those views.
