• Aziz Ansari vs. Rupert Murdoch! #RupertsFault Twitter Hashtag Attacks Murdoch For Anti-Muslim Tweets

    Rupert Murdoch

    Aziz Ansari, J.K. Rowling, and thousands of Twitter users made Rupert Murdoch into a bigger laughingstock than he already is. When the conservative mogul opined that all Muslims should take responsibility for the recent ISIS terrorist attacks, Ansari and Rowling fired back at Murdoch and inspired the #RupertsFault hashtag.

    The controversy started with a series of shocking tweets from Rupert Murdoch last week. He essentially blamed all Muslims, even peaceful ones, for allowing Jihadists to terrorize the world.

    “Maybe most Moslems peaceful, but until they recognize and destroy their growing jihadist cancer they must be held responsible,” Rupert Murdoch tweeted. “Big jihadist danger looming everywhere from Philippines to Africa to Europe to US. Political correctness makes for denial and hypocrisy.”

    Just days later, J.K. Rowling  tweeted in response: “I was born Christian. If that makes Rupert Murdoch my responsibility, I’ll auto-excommunicate.” Rowling also joked: “The Spanish Inquisition was my fault, as is all Christian fundamentalist violence. Oh, and Jim Bakker.”

    But it was a series of tweets from Parks and Recreation star Aziz Ansari that really inspired the Twitter bashing of Rupert Murdoch. On Sunday night, the actor, who was born to a Tamil Muslim  family, mockingly asked Murdoch what his elders could have done to stop ISIS.

    “Rups can we get a step by step guide?” Aziz Ansari tweeted to Rupert Murdoch. “How can my 60 year old parents in NC help destroy terrorist groups? Plz advise.”

    And Ansari’s anti-Murdoch Twitter rant only intensified from there. “Are you responsible for the evil s–t all Christians do or just the insane amount of evil you yourself contribute to?” Ansari added.

    Aziz Ansari then went on to mockingly blame the Fox News founder for all the evil done by Christians. And it wasn’t long before he was joined by others making fun of Rupert Murdoch with the #RupertsFault hashtag.

    Soon even other white Australians were apologizing for Rupert Murdoch’s shocking behavior.
