Man Stirs Controversy By Selling Car But Noting He Won't Sell To Muslims

A man named Steve has come under fire for putting an advertisement up for his car that warned he would not sell to Muslims. The ad read, "Muslims Need Not Call As I WON'T Sell You My Car..."

He has since received a bevy of phone calls from social media users after his mobile number was shared on Twitter. Then, Twitter users started the hashtag #BuyStevesCar with the phone number. Na'eem Raza wrote, "Let's all call Steve and buy his car."

Another joked, "Somebody is going to have to get a new phone number!" Ian Seabrook Tweeted, "Call him and offer him 30 million Muslim dollars. He'll sell." Another questioned how he would know of the person's religion. After a while, some users noted that the phone number was no longer in service.

Before the advertisement was posted, PR boss Matthew Doyle was arrested for inciting racial hatred after tweeting that he had "confronted" a Muslim woman about the Brussels attacks that killed 34 people.
