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.
Can always count on scum like @MatthewDoyle31 to exploit #Brussels for his own bigoted views... pic.twitter.com/9BgtjuRuDx— Moe (@moethemyth) March 23, 2016
@Lina_Serene I am appalled my friend @MatthewDoyle31 wrote such a racist tweet that started this thread off. I have TOLD him, he is ignorant— G. Murray-Dinsmore (@MsGenevieveMD) March 23, 2016
The Internet quickly took to mocking Doyle, with many users choosing to parody his tweet.
You're more likely to be fatally crushed by furniture than killed by terrorists. Be afraid Matthew, be very afraid. https://t.co/uLrCjOA4Dg— Lina - سيرين (@Lina_Serene) March 23, 2016
Confronted Audrey Tautou in Croydon yesterday and asked her to explain Brussels. She quoted lines from an old script. Amelie-mouthed reply.— David Whitley (@mrdavidwhitley) March 23, 2016
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.
I confronted a man who was eating a bowl of muesli yesterday in Croydon. He said "mmfflfffmufflrgh". A mealy mouthed reply.— Robbie Collin (@robbiereviews) March 23, 2016
Vent your fury at those Islamic bastards who destroyed so many innocent lives. Our threat in London is real. I told you so.— Matthew P Doyle (@MatthewDoyle31) March 23, 2016
How long can decent British people put up with this Islamic horror ?— Matthew P Doyle (@MatthewDoyle31) March 23, 2016
