A man who posted a Twitter message about confronting a Muslim woman over the Brussels terror attacks has been arrested by police.
Matthew Doyle is being questioned on suspicion of inciting racial hatred after the purported encounter in Croydon, south London.
A message posted on his Twitter page on Wednesday morning 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.’
The tweet went viral and was widely mocked on Twitter, with many users choosing to parody it.
