?erafettin is a celebrity in his own right. He is vulgar, he is foul-mouthed, he is an absolute misogynist. And he is unapologetic. Yet he has myriads of fans waiting for his return. ?erafettin has been the epitome of what is right and wrong in Turkey for two decades. After a long period of hibernation, he is ready to test his celebrity status, and hopefully gain new fans.
