A former Minister of Aviation, Chief Femi Fani-Kayode, and the Church of Satan clashed on Twitter on Monday over a former New York City prosecutor, Linda Fairstein. Fani-Kayode had taken to his social media handle to lambast Fairstein who led the prosecution of the Central Park Five case, wherein five teenagers, four African-American and one Hispanic, were wrongfully convicted for the 1989 rape and assault in Central Park of a white female jogger.
The former minister described Fairstein as a racist and a member of the Church of Satan. He wrote, “Former NYPD cop, Linda Fairstein, is a racist, witch and a member of the Church of Satan. She should be prosecuted and burnt at the stake with her books. She deserves the death penalty for what she did to those five boys #Central Park 5 #Cancel Linda Farstein.”
In a swift reply, however, the Church of Satan said Farstein was not its member. The church, in a response through its official Twitter handle, tweeted, “She has nothing to do with us. Please leave us out of it.” Fani-Kayode, however, responded, “Get thee behind me Satan!” The church, however, said such threats do not work. It responded, “That doesn’t actually work.
We are right here in front of you telling you that you are making false, unfounded accusations and asking you nicely to please leave us out of it as it has nothing to do with us.”
