The Huffington Post Canada

Nazanin Afshin-Jam was recently the subject of an offensive tweet from the account of a prominent Iranian-American journalist Hooman Majd.

The online attack came as Afshin-Jam, a human rights activist and wife of Defence Minister Peter MacKay, was making headlines over her calls for the closure of the Iranian embassy in Ottawa.

“F***ing a Canadian minister doesn’t make you Canadian, azizam. Come back to papa...” the July 13 tweet, which has since been deleted, read.
