Your Weekly Digest on What Muslim Women Are Talking About

16 Times Nadiya Hussain Clapped Back to Trolls on Twitter

by in Identity on 27th March, 2018

We couldn’t let Muslim Women’s Day pass without crowning Nadiya Hussain, GBBO 2015 winner, as the queen of twitter clapbacks. If you aren’t following her on twitter, get on it. In between delicious brunch and dinner recipes, she’s responding to trolls, what’s not to love. When asked why she engages with them she said “Because if someone spoke to me or my family like that in person I would engage. It is no different here”.

From being told to go back home to telling her that her parenting is bad, she truly has heard it all. Here are just some of her thousands of clapbacks:

  1. When people tell her to go home

2. When someone said Do not feed a troll

3. When someone called her a bad parent because her daughter thought boys were yucky

4. When asked what the punishment for apostasy is

5. When someone said exposing children to a religion is a crime
