The son-in-law of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Selcuk Bayraktar, one of the engineers of the Turkish Bayraktar drones, responded to Swedish American physicist Max Tegmark, a lecturer at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

In an interview with a German newspaper, Tegmark had said he was ashamed that they had given education to Selcuk Bayraktar at MIT.

In reaction, Bayraktar wrote as follows on Twitter: “A so-called academician working at MIT, whose name I heard for the first time, said in an interview during the Karabakh Operation [in the fall of 2020], ‘We are ashamed that we gave education to Selcuk Bayraktar.’ What you should be ashamed of is the genocide and massacres you have committed. We got our lands back. And we are just proud of that!”
