Parag Agarwal, the new Indian-origin CEO of Twitter replacing Jack Dorsey, was trolled on Tuesday on his own platform for an 11-year-old tweet that carried racist remarks. In 2010, when he was not even an employee of Twitter, Agrawal quoted a comedian mocking racism and Islamophobia in America. Questioning this, Republican Ken Buck, asked how users could trust Twitter's new CEO to treat everyone equally.
