The Armenian National Committee of America (ANCA) has called on Disney to cancel its upcoming series about the life of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk, the founding father of the modern Turkish state, according to Greek Reporter.
The ANCA accused Disney of glorifying a “dictator and genocide killer.”
The series is scheduled for release on October 29 this year, to coincide with the 100th anniversary of the Republic of Turkey.
Disney has made no indication that it will consider canceling the series.
“Calling on Disney Plus to cancel its series glorifying Mustafa Kemal Ataturk – a Turkish dictator and genocide killer with the blood of millions of Greek, Armenian, Assyrian, Chaldean, Syriac, Aramean, Maronite, and other Christian martyrs on his hands,” the ANCA wrote on Twitter.
