After Donald Trump’s remarks, Muslims light up Twitter with #MuslimsReportStuff

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said during Sunday’s debate that his proposal to ban Muslims from entering the country has “morphed” into a plan for “extreme vetting” of refugees.

Trump said he was worried that refugees from country like Syria could be a “Trojan horse.” Democrat Hillary Clinton denounced Trump and defended bringing refugees to the United States.

“We are a country founded on religious freedom and liberty. How do we do what [Trump] has advocated without causing great distress within our country?” she said. “Are we going to have religious tests when people fly into our country?”

Asked about the issue of Islamophobia, Trump said that while it is an issue, he said Muslims who come into the country must “report when they see something going on.”

In response to Trump’s suggestion that Muslims report what’s going on, several Muslims began to follow his suggestion. First, the following tweet went viral:

I’m a Muslim, and I would like to report a crazy man threatening a woman on a stage in Missouri.

Then the hashtag #MuslimsReportStuff began to take off:

Creepy orange clowns sighted recently across the country. Some say they saw one pacing the debate stage tonight.
