France's Marianne muse stirs pot with anti-Islam tweet
The leader of feminist activist group Femen, Inna Shevchenko, on Tuesday sparked an online controversy after posting an anti-Islam message to her Twitter account.
Shevchenko is one of the inspirations for France's new official stamp depicting Marianne, the feminine symbol of the French Republic – a fact that makes the accusations of Islamophobia she is currently facing even more inopportune.
The "tweet" in question, published on July 9, reads: "What can be more stupid than Ramadan? What can be more uglier then this religion?"
