Facebook users got angry after they mistook empty bus seats for women in burqas



A photo of empty bus seats caused a heated debate on Facebook because people thought they saw six women in burqas.

The image was shared to a Norwegian anti-immigration group with the question: “What do people think about this?”

Members sounded off, saying things like:

“It looks really scary, should be banned. You can never know who is under there. Could be terrorists with weapons.”

“Get them out of our country, those who look like collapsed umbrellas. Frightening times we are living in.”

“I thought it would be like this in the year 2050, but it is happening NOW!!!!”

The user who posted the photo wanted to show people the dangers of jumping to conclusions and spreading fake news.

Norway's right-wing government recently proposed a law that would ban Muslim women from wearing full face veils in schools.
