When this man was caught confronting a Muslim woman about Brussels, he quickly learned that he wasn’t allowed to question the ‘religion of peace.’
A PR boss who asked a Muslim woman to ‘explain Brussels’ has been arrested on suspicion of inciting racial hatred.
Matthew Doyle, an LSE alumnus and partner at a south London-based talent agency, sparked outrage on social media after he ‘confronted’ a Muslim woman about the Brussels attacks which killed 34 people.
He wrote on Twitter: ‘I confronted a Muslim woman in Croydon yesterday. I asked her to explain Brussels. She said “nothing to do with me”. A mealy mouthed reply.’
His initial post was followed by a number of like-minded tweets such as ‘no more Muslim migration’ and ‘Trump for president’.
The comment went viral, being retweeted hundreds of times before it was eventually removed from Twitter.
The Metropolitan Police issued a statement confirming that a man had been arrested.
‘A 46-year-old man was this evening arrested at his home in Croydon on suspicion of inciting racial hatred on social media,’ said the Metropolitan Police.
‘He has been taken to a south London police station and enquiries continue.’
