A Turkish prosecutor has asked for Enes Kanter to be jailed for up to four years for insulting Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

I have said less than that honorless (man) deserves. Add another 4 years for me, master,” Kanter tweeted in response to the indictment.

Kanter is a supporter of Fethullah Gulen, who the Turkish state accuses of orchestrating an attempted coup in July 2016.

The 25-year-old center called Erdogan “the Hitler of our century” this past summer.
