Buddhist nationalists mistaken Morgan Freeman with Annan



Freeman had previously confused himself not only with Annan, but also with former South African President Nelson Mandela.

Rangoon, Aug 30 (TASR) – A leading anti-Muslim group of Buddhist nationalists in Myanmar has criticized former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan on social media, but misled him with actor Morgan Freeman in his criticism. AP reported it today.

The Myanmar government announced last week that Kofi Annan, head of the UN from 1997 to 2006, will head the search committee "long term solutions"For the Yakain conflict. Several human rights groups have reported widespread abuse by the Rohing Muslim minority there. An anti-Muslim patriotic Myanmar (Ma Ba Tha) association, led by Buddhist monks, has been accused of inciting violence in the region by dead Muslims.

The association on Monday condemned Anna's involvement in the conflict in her facebook status. It is said that "funny looking and rude person cannot talk about our own problems in the country".

The status included a photo, but not of Annan, but of Oscar-winner Morgan Freeman. In the photo, Freeman went over the red "X"and the accompanying text reads:"We don't need Annan's coffee, he's leaving."

This status revolved around the media and mocked social media users in Myanmar.

Freeman had previously confused himself not only with Annan, but also with former South African President Nelson Mandela.
