Muslim woman defended on social media after picture goes viral
One Twitter user called ‘Texas Lone Star’ posted a picture of the woman walking past the injured victim, criticising her in a tweet to his 44,000 followers.
He said: ‘Muslim woman pays no mind to the terror attack, casually walks by a dying man while checking phone #PrayForLondon #Westminster #BanIslam.’
But his tweet provoked disgust, with other users criticising his comments and one branding him ‘the real monster here’.
One named Vicky Forster told him: ‘You are a complete embarrassing mess of a person. Kindly crawl back to the pond you came out of. Stupidity embodied.’
And Lisa Scott defended the woman, adding: ‘She looks terrified. Which she would be, most likely being British and bang in the middle of a terror attack.’
And a user called Kelly Blackwell tweeted: ‘You have no idea what is happening in this picture and deciding to make your own context #banracists #banrednecks.’
