Katrina Lantos Swett received an award from Hungary for the Knight’s Cross of the Order of Merit in 2009 but alongside her there were 100 other recipients returning this extravagant award. It is all because of the remarks from Zsolt Bayer who pushed them to return their awards. It is said that Bayer’s columns were racists and antisemitic. This is why they are returning their awards;because of his comments. Bayer mentioned in a column when a fight broke out at a bar that the people was suspected to be from Roma were “animals” because “they behaved like animals”. All of Bayer’s columns came of racist and made people feel some type of way. It was said that he uses foul language in his columns. This is the reason why many people including the daughter of US Congressman Lantos wants to give their award back.
