An American Has Described Manchester As A 'Hotbed Of Islamic Radicals'

But Mancs had the perfect response

Manchester has been labelled a “hotbed of Islamic radicals” but a contributor to the right-wing American news channel Fox.

Fox News contributor Geraldo Rivera took to social media in the hours after the Manchester Arena attack - which is still being investigated by police - to say our city was linked to the Westminster attack.

"Many terrorists arrested in mowing down of pedestrians outside Westminster London in March were from Manchester – hotbed of Islamic radicals,” he tweeted. 

The Westminster attack was actually carried out by Khalid Masood, a Muslim convert from Kent who had been living in the West Midlands.

He got the response he deserved, quite frankly.

We're hoping that comments like this which are meant to divide our amazing city will only help to unite us.

Chatty horror movie buff with a love for languages and puppies. Manchester blow-in who loves the city completely.
