Someone Harasses Muslim Man With Pics Of Bacon, He Tricks Them By Saying The Real Way To Offend Him Is To Send Milk Chocolate

No matter how good of a person you are, no matter how successful you are—there will always be people who hate you for the most superficial reasons that you can imagine. How we deal with these haters reveals a lot about us as people. So while some people might run and hide from cyberbullies, politician and human rights lawyer Qasim Rashid has witty and creative ways of dealing with internet trolls.
Rashid, a Muslim US Democrat running for Congress, was harassed on Twitter by somebody who posted a photo of bacon. The politician hilariously turned things in his favor by joking that it’s actually milk chocolate that offends Muslims. And somebody ended up sending Rashid a massive box of chocolate. We call that an all-round win!

The politician’s story got quite a bit of attention on Twitter. More than 5.5k people like his post and over 800 of them retweeted the story. People congratulated Rashid on ‘winning’ and said that he ‘owned’ the bacon troll. Later on it turned out that the box of goodies was sent by Peace by Chocolate that wanted to support Rashid.
This isn’t the first time that Rashid was harassed online, however. In 2018, a man named Joseph Cecil Vandevere, aka DaDUTCHMAN5, threatened to kill him on social media by alluding that lynching is in store for him.
Vandevere turned himself in to the FBI and has been charged with issuing threats via interstate commerce. He was sentenced to 10 months in prison on June 2.
Rashid and his family immigrated to the US from Pakistan when he was a child. Among other reasons, they were running away from religious persecution. Rashid grew up to become a lawyer who supports survivors of domestic violence, immigrants, and healthcare and education non-profit organizations.
Now, Rashid is running for office in Virginia’s First Congressional District. He aims to return this district back “to the people.”
