A London man was arrested after posting on Twitter about a confrontation that he had with a Muslim woman who he had asked to "explain Brussels," Sky news reported on Thursday.
The tweet, which was posted on Wednesday afternoon, 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."

Many jumped to criticize the tweet, feeling Doyle's tweet was insensitive following Tuesday's bombings in Brussels, which killed at least 31 people and injured 270.

The Internet quickly took to mocking Doyle, with many users choosing to parody his tweet.

Doyle, who seems to be enjoying his new Internet fame, has since tweeted several more anti-Islam tweets on his page, including calling for a ban on the burka, increased vigilance against Islam, and frequently refers to Muslims as "Towel heads" in his derogatory tweets.
