When Twitter Shows The Worst/ Best/ Best Again Of People
Rupert Murdoch maybe be more infamous than famous, but he still counts as a celebrity, right? And his celebrity Twitter account never fails to produce something stupid. For instance:
Maybe most Moslems peaceful, but until they recognize and destroy their growing jihadist cancer they must be held responsible.— Rupert Murdoch (@rupertmurdoch) January 10, 2015
Sigh. Of course. Because every single one of the world’s 1.6 billion Muslims should be held accountable for every other Muslim’s actions. As a Chicagoan, I don’t even want to be held accountable for my city’s Cubs fans actions so I can’t imagine how Muslims would feel about being represented by the very worst their religion has to offer.
Luckily, we don’t have to imagine. Because lapsed Muslim Aziz Anzari tweeted all of the reasonable responses we needed:
.@rupertmurdoch Rups can we get a step by step guide? How can my 60 year old parents in NC help destroy terrorist groups? Plz advise.— Aziz Ansari (@azizansari) January 12, 2015
.@rupertmudoch Are you responsible for the evil shit all Christians do or just the insane amount of evil you yourself contribute to?— Aziz Ansari (@azizansari) January 12, 2015
All Christian militia people and anyone they've hurt. #RupertsFault— Aziz Ansari (@azizansari) January 12, 2015
Anytime a Christian person rear ended your car. #RupertsFault— Aziz Ansari (@azizansari) January 12, 2015
To be clear, I am not religious and have nothing against Christians or Muslims, just ignorance like what @rupertmurdoch is spreading.— Aziz Ansari (@azizansari) January 12, 2015
In addition to the clear cut, well reasoned argument, Ansari’s tweet created #RupertsFault. Poor Rupert. It’s like you can’t even say insanely ignorant bullshit on a public website without people making a big effing deal about it anymore. Thanks, Obama!
Not to be out done, J.K. Rowling found the classiest way to tell Murdoch to fuck off.
I was born Christian. If that makes Rupert Murdoch my responsibility, I'll auto-excommunicate. http://t.co/Atw1wNk8UX— J.K. Rowling (@jk_rowling) January 11, 2015
