The tweet was deleted. In it, Esen had compared the bloodshed in her menstrual cycle with that of the 249 people who lost their lives during the failed coup that are now celebrated in Turkey as martyrs.

She wrote :”To celebrate July 15 Martyr’s Day, I began the morning by getting my period. I am celebrating the day by bleeding representing the martyrs blood,”

Esen said her post was not politically motivated. “I want to say that as an 18-year-old girl, I had no political aims while sharing this post,” she wrote, saying that she only shared her “innocent thoughts during a sensitive time.”

“My family raised me by teaching to respect our homeland and nation. I do not have a character that could show disrespect to our martyrs,” she said.
