Azerbaijan: Facebook hate campaign for ‘consorting’ with the ‘enemy?’

Angered by a photograph of Aynishan Guliyeva, a contestant in this year's national selection for Eurovision, standing next to an Armenian competitor during a recent regional music festival, some youth in Azerbaijan have launched a hate campaign against the singer on the popular social networking site. Created on Monday, the page has 2,726 likes at time of writing with the campaign reportedly resulting in the singer deleting her Armenian counterpart as a contact from her personal Facebook page.
