#MuslimsReportStuff: How Twitterati decided to honour Donald Trump's wishes

Few would disagree with the fact that Donald Trump is easily one of the most trolled public figure amid tweeples. And when the Republican Presidential nominee, known for making offhand comments, spewed fresh vitriol in his second debate with Democratic Hillary Clinton, he gave twitterati more reasons to poke fun at him.

A member from the audience, Gobrah Hamed questioned Trump about what are his thoughts on growing Islamophobia and how his presidency will help people who are being labelled as a threat just because they are Muslims.

Trump, who clearly attempted to tone down his response as compared to some of his previous statements about Muslims, apparently failed to package it in a palatable manner. While on one hand Trump agreed that Islamophobia is indeed a problem, he also tried to allude that Muslims fail to do enough about reporting terrorists.

Sample this:

"You're right about Islamophobia and that's a shame. One thing we have to do is we have to make sure that because there is a problem, whether we like it or not — and we could be very politically correct, but whether we like it or not, there is a problem and we have to be sure that Muslims come in and report when they see something going on. When they see hatred going on, they have to report it."

Twitter was taken by a storm as people all over the world started tweeting with #MuslimsReportStuff. The thread garnered some hilarious responses as people resorted to "reporting stuff" — even the banalities of everyday life.

And even this.

Some people just used the thread to express their anger and point out that his comment was made in bad taste.

And some just had a laugh at his expense.
