Hundreds of Egyptians posted hostile comments on the official Facebook page of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Friday after he criticised Egypt’s president during his speech to the UN General Assembly.

Egyptians users wrote “long live Egypt” “Viva Sisi” and insulted Erdogan in Arabic and English in comments attached to official posts on the page on Friday.

Some Egyptian users even called for a boycott on Turkish products in their comments.

In his speech to the UN this week, the Turkish president condemned the lack of international response to “the overthrow of the president” in Egypt, a reference to the ouster of Mohamed Morsi last year, and the “legitimising” of “the person who carried out this coup”, a reference to President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi.

El-Sisi, who led the ouster of Morsi last summer after mass protests against his rule and was elected president in June, remains popular in Egypt.

The Egyptian foreign ministry strongly criticised Erdogan`s speech as “lies and fabrications”, and canceled a bilateral meeting requested by Turkey, although Turkish officials denied such a meeting had ever been scheduled.

The UAE, a strong ally of El-Sisi, also criticised Erdogan`s speech, describing it as "direct and blatant" intervention in Egypt`s internal affairs.

Bilateral ties between Cairo and Ankara have deteriorated since the ouster of Morsi, an ally of Erdogan.
