Islamist Liberal MP asks Twitter to censor parody account she believes is spewing ̷h̷a̷t̷e̷ ̷ the truth

A Liberal MP who was targeted with hate mail and death threats last year over a motion to condemn Islamophobia and systemic racism has asked Twitter to investigate a parody account she believes has crossed the line from funny to hateful.

The Iqra Khalid account is one of more than 50 parody accounts created by what appear to be critics of the Liberal government, linked online under the hashtag “parodycabinet.” The accounts exploded in late June when Twitter shut down one that veered too close to impersonating Environment Minister Catherine McKenna.
