He has since deleted it.

I can't believe this guy would post something like this? I thought he was a cool liberal who wouldn't stand for such bigotry? Nazism failed, doesn't he realise it?

Muslims are not a race, they belong to a religion.

Second of all it is a play on stereotypes, calm down. And why exactly should liberals appease a totally misogynistic practice?

My whole post was sarcastic if you didn't realise. The fact that you took it seriously just shows how ****ed up this world is.

Liberals are the ones complaining, Huffington post editors etc if you read the article also.

Sorry but with the whole 'We stand up against any perceived threat to Islam' brigade on TSR it is sometimes hard to shift sarcasm from reality.

I see nothing racist in it. It might not be the case in this country, but it is certainly the case in a lot of Muslims worldwide especially in developing countries.

There was nothing in your post to suggest that you were being sarcastic.

People need to chill out, it was funny and obviously a joke. I'm sure other comedians have said things that are a lot worse or at lease the same level.

From the look of the responses to his tweet it seems it was more outrage in America rather than across the world with people saying the girl in question is a 16 year old American who isn't married....so why try and get a cheap laugh at her expense by making out she's got a polygamous husband...

Americans aren't especially PC by nature but they will make use of their right to free speech, so if you make a crap joke you have to be willing to take the backlash and then not retreat in to saying its PC gone mad etc
