On Wednesday, following the gun attack on provocative French satirists by extremists, social media site Twitter erupted in usual fashion. However, something alarming unfolded as the hashtag #KillAllMuslims began trending, along with a tirade of 100s of Islamophobic tweets. Islam is often linked to such attacks by the media and Muslims are forced to denounces violence and terrorism.

The Muslim Vibe led a social media initiative, using the hashtag #JeSuisMuslim (which translates to ‘I am Muslim’). The idea was to take a stand against Islamophobia and the notion that Muslims needs to apologise, and was mentioned on the BBC.

Here is our selection of some of the best tweets:
