Rupert Murdoch’s tweets lead to some righteous trolling
After the attacks on Charlie Hebdo, the Australian creator of the Fox News Channel, Rupert Murdoch, took to Twitter to marginalize peaceful Muslims by faulting them for jihadists from their religion.
The outrage was sizable and some very famous people came out to admonish the right-winger. Even Australians took to Twitter to apologize for their native.
J.K. Rowling, author of the Harry Potter series said:

Ansari went on unanswered, but left one final tweet to Murdoch:
Troll Level: God.
The response towards Rowling and Ansari has been huge, several times the following Mudoch received.
The YouGov website conducted a survey to find out who agreed or disagreed with Murdoch’s statement, and the survey shows that the consensus is split, showing 42 percent agreed with the creator of the worst news channel in the planet and 45 percent disagreed.
