Tweeters mock Newsweek's #MuslimRage cover
LOS ANGELES (AP) - If Newsweek was looking for a conversation-starter with its latest issue, it certainly got it.
The magazine's cover essay, Muslim Rage: How I Survived It, How We Can End It, has spawned a huge response on Twitter.
The essay by Somali-Dutch activist Ayaan Hirsi Ali addresses the issue of free speech in light of deadly riots in the Middle East over an anti-Islamic film.
But most of the tweets using Newsweek's hashtag, (hash)MuslimRage, have mocked the subject, rather than adopt the article's serious tone.
