Footage emerged on social media of a protester in Iran tearing down a poster of Ayatollah Khomeini, Founder of the Islamic Revolution regime, while calling him a "hyena" and a "dirty beast," who "smeared shit all over the nation." The protester said that "that bastard belongs on the ground," and urged fellow Iranians to step on his poster, lying on the ground. The footage was posted on Twitter on January 3.


Iranina protestor: "Oh Khomeini, you hyena, you Indian. I want to bring his [poster] down, for your enjoyment. As you can see, I am above the banner and I have torn it down. The last piece has been left there, and I want us to see it [come down] together.


"Yes... That is Khomeini, the dirty Indian. Down you go, you lowlife. Yes, that's a picture of the Indian lowlife, Khomeini, may his soul be cursed. He came 38 years ago, and smeared shit all over the nation, when it carried out the revolution and put that dirty beast in charge. That bastard belongs on the ground, not above. He belongs on the ground, where people can step on him."
