IN A BRAGGING Twitter message following the barbaric Brussels bombings, the man who confronted a Muslim woman in Croydon about the Brussels attacks has been arrested for inciting racial hatred. 

Matthew Doyle, who surprisingly works in PR, is currently being questioned on suspicion of inciting racial hatred after the alleged encounter in Croydon, south London.

On Wednesday morning, Doyle said: “I confronted a Muslim woman yesterday in Croydon. I asked her to explain Brussels. She said ‘Nothing to do with me’. A mealy mouthed reply.”


Since that inflammable tweet first surfaced it went viral and was subsequently widely mocked on Twitter, with many parodying it.

Joe Heenan wrote: “I confronted my 5 yr old son yesterday. I asked him to explain the mortgage rates. He said ‘I dunno, I like Batman’. A mealy mouthed reply.”

Duncan Edwards wrote: “Confronted a bloke in a lab coat in Croydon. Asked him to explain cancer. He said “Nothing to do with me”. A mealy mouthed reply.”

Enam Haque wrote: “I confronted a ferret and asked him to explain Donald Trump’s hair. He said ‘nothing to do with me’. A mealy mouthed response.”

A Scotland Yard spokesman said on Wednesday March 23: “We have arrested a 46-year-old man on suspicion of inciting racial hatred on social media.

“He was arrested tonight at an address in Croydon and remains in custody at a south London police station.”

Daesh has claimed it was behind the bombings which killed more than 30 people at the airport and Metro station in Brussels.
