The son of Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu had an explicit message for Turkey amid a furious diplomatic spat between the two countries. In the image, the crescent replaced the letter "c" in the word 'f*ck'.

Beside expelling the Israeli ambassador, Turkey has also recalled its envoys to Tel Aviv and Washington in protest against the bloodshed in Gaza where over 60 people have been killed by Israeli forces.

Yair appears to have deleted his account but numerous screenshots of the vulgar text, which appears on a backdrop of the Turkish flag, have been shared on social media.

A spokesperson for the Netanyahu family said that "Yair is a private person and so is his Instagram account".

Responding to Erdogan, Netanyahu said, "A man who sends thousands of Turkish soldiers to hold the occupation of northern Cyprus and invades Syria will not preach to us when we defend ourselves from an attempt by Hamas".

The 26-year-old's move was not surprising since he previously insulted fellow Israelis, including former Prime Minister Ehud Barak and opposition leaders, with the same images and rhetoric used by neo-Nazis and far-right movements. In September, he was forced to delete a meme from his Facebook profile which was described as anti-Semitic and a nod to white supremacy.

Erdogan on Tuesday said "Netanyahu is the PM of an apartheid state". Former Klu Klux Klan leader David Duke tweeted his approval, writing, "Welcome to the club, Yair - absolutely unbelievable, wow, just wow".

In January he was also caught on tape outside a Tel Aviv strip club drunkenly boasting about his powerful father and making derogatory comments about women. In the recording, he discusses getting a prostitute and reminds his friend, Nir Maimon, the son of natural gas tycoon Kobi Maimon, of the "awesome deal" his father arranged for his father.
