    Man behind 'mealy mouthed' tweet is arrested

    Matthew_3599603b.jpg

    The man whose Twitter message about confronting a Muslim woman about the Brussels terror attacks and getting a "mealy mouthed reply" spawned scores of parodies online has now been arrested by police.

    Matthew Doyle is being questioned on suspicion of inciting racial hatred on social media.

    A message posted on his Twitter profile on Wednesday morning stated: "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 message went viral and was widely mocked on Twitter, with many users parodying it.



    A spokesman for Scotland Yard said: "We have arrested a 46-year-old man on suspicion of inciting racial hatred on social media.

    "He was arrested tonight at an address in Croydon and remains in custody at a south London police station."

    This story was embedded in a much larger story about Brussels.

    Supposedly, yesterday after the Brussels attack, a teacher in the Netherlands tweeted how most of his class was celebrating after hearing the news. He tweeted something along the lines of "How am I supposed to teach in these conditions?" He was promptly visited by his local police. Supposedly.

    I confronted Meatloaf yesterday in Croydon. I asked if he’d do anything for love. He said, “Yes, but I won’t do that.” A meaty mouthed reply

    How many times to you cancel a post these days? How many subjects have you dropped? all out of fear you might say something wrong? Me? Many, i assure you.

    I honestly am speechless.
    What's the world going to be like in 20 years?
    North Korea style, we better get jobs in high ranking government positions or we're gonna be jailed for these message board musings.
