Aziz Ansari Mercilessly Mocked Rupert Murdoch For His Anti-Muslim Comments On Twitter

Could Ansari be any more perfect?

Last week, News Corp CEO Rupert Murdoch caused outrage by tweeting that the 1.6 billion Muslims in the world should be held accountable for the "growing jihadist cancer".

Maybe most Moslems peaceful, but until they recognize and destroy their growing jihadist cancer they must be held responsible.

His comments about "most Moslems" came after the attack on the office of the satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo in Paris last Wednesday, which left 12 people dead.

Murdoch’s comments were noticed by popular comedian and actor Aziz Ansari, who took to Twitter yesterday to express his thoughts to his 4.9 million followers.

He began by asking "Rups" how he should advise his 60-year-old parents to help destroy terrorist groups.

.@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.

Ansari then described Murdoch as "evil" and mocked him by asking whether he was "responsible" for all the actions of Christians worldwide.

.@rupertmudoch Are you responsible for the evil shit all Christians do or just the insane amount of evil you yourself contribute to?


.@rupertmurdoch, you're already a vaguely evil media conglomerate guy and THEN you're ALSO racist? FOR REAL?! You're an evil overachiever!

The Parks & Recreation star then began the Twitter hashtag #RupertsFault to show how absurd it is to blame an entire religion on the actions of a minority of extremists.

.@rupertmurdoch You are Catholic, why are you not hunting pedophiles? #RupertsFault

.@rupertmurdoch is responsible for all pedophilia committed by anyone Catholic. @rupertmurdoch why are you pro-pedophile :(

.@rupertmurdoch is Christian just like Mark David Chapman who shot John Lennon. Why didn't Rupert stop it? #RupertsFault

Anytime a Christian person rear ended your car. #RupertsFault

Ansari made it clear that although he is not religious himself, he wanted to call out the "ignorance" Murdoch was spreading.

To be clear, I am not religious and have nothing against Christians or Muslims, just ignorance like what @rupertmurdoch is spreading.

He also made a reference to the hacking scandal that engulfed the Murdoch-owned News International subsidiary.

If only I could hack into @rupertmurdoch's voicemails and hear what his panicked PR ppl say after they read whatever racist shit he says.

Ansari's fans then began tweeting their own amusing responses to his hashtag, blaming Murdoch for all the terrible things in the world.

SHAME RUPERT SHAME RT @mt_hardison .@azizansari Christian rock music. #RupertsFault

The popularity of The Big Bang Theory #Rupertsfault

College text books are too expensive #RupertsFault

The comedian then ended his Twitter rant by saying Murdoch's comments had ruined his enjoyment of the Golden Globes.

Fucking up a nice Golden Globes by making me go into a Twitter rage #RupertsFault

Oh, and *mic drop*

@rupertmurdoch Quit back peddling you racist piece of shit

So there you have it: Yet another reason why Aziz is an absolute boss.
