U.S. Ambassador to Turkey John Bass tried (on) a new kind of diplomatic solidarity this week: he went blonde. Check out his Instagram post below.
Bass was responding to a comment made on Twitter by Ankara Mayor Melih Gokcek. Gokcek's tweet ridiculed U.S. State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf, calling Harf a "dumb blonde." (It's not the first time he's pointed out her blondeness.) In his digitally altered retort, Ambassador Bass's hair got to strawberry blonde at best--Harf's is platinum--but the message was noble. Bass wrote: "#American diplomats: we're all blonde", in a show of solidarity with his fellow diplomat.
