‘Muslim rage’ cover of Newsweek turns into #MuslimRage Twitter jokefest

Here are some of our favourite tweets…

NEWSWEEK ILLUSTRATED THE protests sweeping the Muslim world - following the release of an anti-Islam film -  with a front cover headline of ‘Muslim Rage’ and an image of angry protesters.

The front cover also points to a story by Islam critic Ayaan Hirsi Ali who has written about ‘how I survived it (the ‘muslim rage’) and how we can end it’.

Newsweek tweeted its followers asking them to get involved in the conversation using the hashtag #MuslimRage, but didn’t quite get the reaction it was expecting.

This one, from Twitter user @LibyaLiberty has already been tweeted more than 4,000 times:

While some are using the #MuslimRage hashtag to make serious points, it has also gone off on a rather hilarious tangent…
