It's based on the hashtag #JeSuisCharlie, which trended around the world on 7 January after 11 people were murdered in France by two terrorists.

I notice that feminists are always fat and fucking ugly. Hence why they are so angry. Can't get laid. #JeSuisPage3

The people using the hashtag are comparing the (unconfirmed) decision by The Sun to scrap topless models on the third page of its paper with the terrorists' violent attack on Charlie Hebdo earlier this month.

Some people on the hashtag are remarking that "feminists" attempted to stop Page 3 because they are unattractive.

The epithet "feminazi", a term coined by talkshow host Rush Limbaugh, is also being used.

It's impossible to say exactly how serious everyone using this hashtag is being.

@NoMorePage3 is an attack on free speech exactly the same as the terrorists at charlie hebdo #jesuispage3
