Outrage at 'white man' tweet after mosque attack

  • 20/06/2017

A tweet from a media outlet in the United Kingdom in relation to Monday's mosque terror attack has caused outrage online.

Daily Mail UK tweeted out that a "clean shaven white man" was the driver of a van that mowed down ten people in north London, killing one.

One commenter asked: "What does his being clean shaven have to do with anything?"

Others weighed in saying the Daily Mail could have been making a point about how other races or religions are portrayed in terror situations.

Many also criticised the Daily Mail for failing to call him a "terror" attacker throughout their articles, despite it being labelled a terror attack by both Theresa May and the police.
