Britain 1 Racism 0

The man from Croydon who confronted a Muslim woman in the street to explain the Brussels attack has been arrested.

On Wednesday morning, Matthew Doyle tweeted: “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.”

What followed was a series of tweets mocking him (sample some below).

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.”

Defending his comments, Doyle told the Huffington Post that the woman he confronted was wearing an Islamic headscarf.

He said: “She was wearing a flag. If I was walking down the street wearing a jacket emblazoned with a Union Jack then I would be open to some abuse.”

Here are tweets that mocked Doyle:
