Following Tuesday’s terrorist attacks in Brussels in which 31 people lost their lives social media has been awash with responses to the atrocities.

Unfortunately a common response has been for people to start pointing the finger at the Muslim community as a whole for what, in reality, are the actions of a tiny – and extreme – minority.

In attempt to highlight the ridiculousness of blaming an entire, worldwide community for the crimes of a few, Emlyn Pearce took to Facebook to post his own ‘experiences of prejudice’ in Glasgow.

His post is absolutely brilliant in pointing the sheer narrow-mindedness of some peoples’ treatment of Muslims and it’s fair to say he has totally nailed it: 

WHAT IS UP WITH ALL THE MUSLIMS AND BLACK PEOPLE IN GLASGOW TODAY???This is the worst day ever. I am currently hiding…

Unfortunately not quite everyone grasped the ‘satirical’ nature of Emlyn’s post:

A few commenters did make the point that the perhaps the very people Emlyn’s post was aimed at were the same people who wouldn’t understand it…
