Zayn Malik Is Not a Terrorist, All Joking Aside
About two weeks ago, comedian Bill Maher compared Zayn to convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev on his HBO show, Real Time With Bill Maher. I feel like this should be brought to national attention because so many people make racist remarks about the Muslim community, saying that they're terrorists. Not all Muslims are terrorists. This needs to be talked about more, and Bill did on his show, claiming that his intent was misunderstood.
Still, I think there needs to be a public discussion about this and how there needs to be rules about what can be said on primetime television. Change.org even launched a petition. I believe people need to sign it, so Bill and other media personalities realize that these jokes can't be made anymore.
