 327E209A00000578-0-image-a-2_1458745788050A PR boss who asked a Muslim woman to ‘explain Brussels’ has been arrested on suspicion of inciting racial hatred. (What ‘race’ is Islam?) Matthew Doyle, (photo right) an LSE alumnus and partner at a south London-based talent agency, sparked outrage on social media after he ‘confronted’ a Muslim woman about the Brussels attacks by Muslims which killed 34 people.

UK Daily Mail  (h/t Don W) He wrote on Twitter: ‘I confronted a Muslim woman in Croydon yesterday. I asked her to explain Brussels. She said “nothing to do with me”. A mealy mouthed reply.’ 

His initial post was followed by a number of like-minded tweets such as ‘no more Muslim migration’ and ‘Trump for president’.

The comment went viral, being retweeted hundreds of times before it was eventually removed from Twitter.  The Metropolitan Police issued a statement saying: ‘A 46-year-old man was this evening arrested at his home in Croydon on suspicion of inciting racial hatred on social media,’ said the Metropolitan Police. He has been taken to a south London police station and enquiries continue.’  

Croydon’ became a trending topic following Mr Doyle’s tweet, as people flooded the social network with both furious and witty put-downs. But Mr Doyle, who attended private Wellington College, defended his post telling MailOnline: ‘I am not out of sync…I think people who are criticising me are out of sync.’

‘The incident did happen. I didn’t confront the Muslim woman, I just saw her coming towards me and I was emotionally fueled.’  ‘She said “it was nothing to do with me”. I said “have a good day” and then turned around and said “bye”. It’s not like I’m a guy with tattoos who pushed her against a wall.

‘I don’t think it’s stereotyping. Would you be afraid of me on the Tube? Any Londoner has to be vigilant and alert as the Islamic threat is a big one. It could happen here and it probably will. There was 7/7 and then look what happened with Lee Rigby, that was horrific. 

‘I never meant for the post to go viral. Bonnie Greer, whom I don’t particularly like, has been passing judgement on it.’

Referring to some of the accusations levelled against him, he replied: ‘The Norway attack was an isolated incident with one madman. What we are facing is a collective group of terrorists operating under the umbrella name of ISIS.’

When asked about his later posts, the history graduate responded: ‘I didn’t have a thousand followers on Twitter until today. I don’t care anymore. I am just making a point. I am not out of sync. I think people who are criticising me are out of sync.’

The 46-year-old added: ‘I have the right in a democratic society to speak my own mind.’  (Unfortunately, in the UK, you don’t…except if you are a muslim)  

It comes after yesterday’s bomb attacks on the Belgian capital’s main airport and Metro system left at least 34 people dead and 198 injured.

His post on Twitter was met with a flurry of responses, with some joking about ‘confronting a white man’ and asking them to explain atrocities such as Dunblane and the 2011 Norway attacks when mass murderer Anders Breivik murdered 77 people.
