An explosion outside of an Ariana Grande concert Monday night killed as many as 20 people and injured approximately 50, but some liberals on Twitter seem more concerned about hurting the feelings of Muslim people.
Some verified users are angry at the “racism and xenophobia” they’re seeing in response to the attack, which reports say was carried out by a suicide bomber.
the manchester tag is making me sick, the amount of racism and bullshit people are spouting when they dont know ANYTHING.

While you’re all refreshing your timelines waiting for updates from Manchester, use your time to report racist and racially abusive tweets.

For the people abusing Muslims in regards to #Manchester put your racism & xenophobia away. A lot of the people helping children are Muslim.
