The athlete has referred to Erdogan as "the Hitler of our century," and felt London was a threat because of the large number of Turkish communities in the city. There are around over 100 people...that just speak out against the government and they've been getting kidnapped and sent back to Turkey. That's why I was scared of going to London. Kanter Kanter is expected to become a U.S. citizen in about 2 years.
