The BBC has shared the story of Resham Khan and her make up blog. To recap Resham and her cousin Jameel Muhktar, were attacked when acid was thrown through a car window in London. The man charged with the attack was John Tomlin, not a Muslim, not from Pakistan and not an Islamic terrorist.
The headline from the BBC has been posted by Katie Hopkins, connecting it to Muslims and blaming the BBC for normalising acid attacks.
It’s attracted the usual range of comments that show the majority failed to read the article, one must assume that Katie also did not read it.
In fact the article is a very moving, and a brave interview, with the victim of an acid attack who blogs the reality of her life after the attack. She does this by sharing her make up routine and photographs with the world via social media. You can find Reshan at @ReshKhan_ . You can find Katie Hopkins in the gutter where her ilk like to broadcast their hate from., but just remember, to paraphrase Oscar Wilde, she, unlike others, is not looking up to the stars.
