Washington Post's Muslim stabbing headline quickly amended after criticism
by T. Becket Adams
Washington Post editors promptly rewrote a controversial headline Tuesday afternoon after hearing online complaints that it was misleading regarding the religion of a man accused of stabbing two people in Detroit.
In an article initially headlined "Man stabs two at a bus stop after asking them if they're Muslim," the Post reported that a Muslim man, Terrence Lavaron Thomas, stabbed two people at a bus top after asking them if they were Muslims.
When they replied that they were not, "[Thomas] was not happy with that answer," Southfield Police Chief Eric Hawkins said.
