We need some good news for today. Some shitty white guy tweeted about harassing a Muslim woman by blaming her for the recent IS attacks in Belgium and got arrested for being a dick. It's beautiful.
London Man Who Asked Muslim Woman to "Explain" Brussels Terror Attacks Arrested
Also, a ton of people made fun of him on Twitter.
I confronted Croydon and asked it to explain @MatthewDoyle31. Nobody had heard of him ever. A mealy mouthed reply. pic.twitter.com/wAJDWH7zv3— Khamis M. Mustafa (@realkhamis) March 23, 2016
After he was arrested "on suspicion of inciting racial hatred" (why can't we have laws like that in the U.S.?), he went right into whining about how he was actually politely racist!
He told the Telegraph that his tweet was blown way out of proportion; that he didn't actually "confront" this random woman; that confront was maybe not the right word, come to think of it; that the internet didn't have the story straight.
"What everyone's got wrong about this is I didn't confront the woman," he said. "I just said: 'Excuse me, can I ask what you thought about the incident in Brussels?'"
"She was white, and British, wearing a hijab — and she told me it was nothing to do with her," he continued. "I said, 'thank you for explaining that' — and her little boy said goodbye to me as we went out separate ways." The "mealy mouthed reply" bit must have been an internal aside, in that case.
Lol this guy thinks that you can't be white, British, and Muslim. "Wah wah no I actually lied about how confrontational and racist I was being but I admit that I was still trying to blame each individual Muslim person for every terrorist attack tied to organizations that sound Muslim."
What a pathetic piece of shit.
