Kanter has been very outspoken on politics in his native country of Turkey. After he criticized Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Kanter’s father wrote a letter apologizing for his sons views. Kanter was also reportedly disowned by his family last year.
In the video, Kanter indicated he would keep us posted on his situation. Hopefully, there is a peaceful resolution.
