Just minutes after Donald Trump suggested during last night’s debate that Muslims “come in and report when they see something going on” and that “when they see hatred going on, they have to report it,” his comments inspired a new hashtag, #MuslimsReportStuff, which quickly went viral. One of the first tweets, by Moustafa Bayoumi who wrote, “I’m a Muslim, and I would like to report a crazy man threatening a woman on a stage in Missouri,” was the most RT’d tweet of the debate.

Other tweets highlighted the profiling of Muslims, especially in the wake of attacks by white supremacists and other non-Muslims:
I saw armed jihadists curse the US gov & swear they’d fight to the death but turned out they were white supremacists. #MuslimsReportStuff

And others showed off their comedic skills:
#MuslimsReportStuff Gremlins 2 is the rare sequel that completely deconstructs the franchise. For my money, it’s better than the first.
