Earlier this year this Sikh basketball player’s image was utilised by some morons online within a racist meme. Thankfully the internet has struck back.

Darsh Singh was the NCAA’s first turbaned Sikh basketball player, and he was once the co-captain of his team at Trinity University.

The meme suggested that Darsh was in fact a potential terrorist, and people would not mark him due to the threat of him carrying explosives.

Thankfully for Darsh he has made a lot of friends in life, and they were not about to allow the abuse to stand.

On December 6 his mate Greg Worthington took to Facebook to set the record straight.

Let me tell you why this shit isn't funny. I know this guy and his name's not 'Muhammad.' He's not Arab, he's Punjabi….

Over 35,000 shares later, the Smithsonian Asian Pacific American Center set up #BeLikeDarsh.

As a result Twitter has gone crazy with social media users highlighting all the reasons Darsh is a perfect role model.

And then the man himself stepped in to have his say.

What an absolute legend.
