Newsweek’s "Muslim Rage" Cover Sparks Immediate Backlash

Many are calling Newsweek’s new cover offensive and sensational. Twitter users are also now actively trolling Newsweek’s #MuslimRage hashtag in protest.

1. This is Newsweek’s newest cover, showcasing the recent riots spreading throughout the Middle East.

2. Newsweek then offered readers a venue to discuss the controversial issue with the hashtag #MuslimRage

Users then re-appropriated the hashtag and have begun actively trolling it, filling it up with jokes by—for the most part—Muslim twitter accounts about Muslim culture.
