Salt Bae doesn't just season steaks. He also votes.
Yes, that's chef Nusret Gökçe, aka Salt Bae, voting. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan claimed victory Sunday in a referendum that gives him sweeping new powers.
Are the results bad for democracy? You bet. The 18 additional constitutional amendments will eliminate the position of prime minister, give Erdogan more power over the judiciary, and allow him to run for at least two more five-year terms. He's been criticized around the world for increasingly cracking down on journalists and political opponents in recent years.
(Yes, there are serious questions about the legitimacy of the election results. The opposition party is calling for a recount for around a third of the votes.)
So, as democracy takes a hit, at least the people can turn to memes for comfort.
In case you were wondering, Salt Bae didn't reveal which way he voted. But we're pretty sure he's pro-steak and revealing V-necks.
