Channel 4´s latest documentary on British Muslims was always going to be a controversial one.
What British Muslims Really Think explored the results of a Channel 4 commissioned survey into the attitudes of Muslims living in the UK.
The poll - which was conducted by face to face interviews with 1,000 UK Muslims - revealed some striking statistics and viewers were eager to see how the programme would explore them.
#WhatBritishMuslimsReallyThink Will be interesting to watch, In the UK atm Islamophobia is rife. I hope this documentary is not a smear job

I really hope this is a balanced perspective so we can all move forward together. #WhatBritishMuslimsReallyThink

But they made up their minds pretty quickly on what type of tone they thought the show was taking.
The documentary starts with the 7/7 bombings! Ok see where this is going #WhatBritishMuslimsReallyThink

Katie Hopkins decided to tweet during the show - but she was put down fairly rapidly.
@KTHopkins surprising. I've got loads of Muslim mates at uni and they haven't murdered me yet. Strange eh?

@KTHopkins how did you get to that number? Ur not twisting stuff to suit ur own agenda by any chance? How predictable!
-- Sarah Reoch (@ReochSarah) April 13, 2016
@KTHopkins are you actually watching it? Or too busy typing up your daily drivel article? They didn't actually ask 100000 Muslims.

Muslim viewers also decided to share their views on what they really think about What British Muslims Really Think.
So far, as a British Muslim, I think this skewed program will only increase islamophobia. #WhatBritishMuslimsReallyThink

As a British Muslim just 14mins in and already frustrated by C4 #WhatBritishMuslimsReallyThink

My Muslim family certainly don't pose a threat, but that's because they don't take their religion seriously. #WhatBritishMuslimsReallyThink
-- Raza Saab (@RazaSaab) April 13, 2016
#WhatBritishMuslimsReallyThink really dislike the term 'Muslim Ghettos' and of them being spoken as 'no go areas' GO TO THEM BOO X

If you really want to know #WhatBritishMuslimsReallyThink just come and speak to one, not get influenced by the media - promise we dont bite

But viewers did still manage to find some light relief from all the negativity of the show - in the reconstructions of the interviews taking place.
The reconstruction is so depressing, it's like an arranged marriage proposals presentation. #WhatBritishMuslimsReallyThink

Shut up reconstruction actors. Hope you find better acting roles in the future though. #WhatBritishMuslimsReallyThink

They wondered whether they could have possibly picked a more miserable looking man to represent the Muslim survey respondents.
#WhatBritishMuslimsReallyThink Why did they get the most suspicious looking guy for the reconstruction...

Criteria casting had for role of interviewee in reconstruction scenes: "Morbid brown man who doesn't smile." #WhatBritishMuslimsReallyThink
-- Aina Khan (@ainakhan5) April 13, 2016
I wouldn't trust the answers of that bloke in the reconstruction. He looks well angry. #WhatBritishMuslimsReallyThink
-- Jonathan Church (@jonathan_church) April 13, 2016
The reconstruction looks like a scene from a police drama, the guy looks like a criminal being questioned. #WhatBritishMuslimsReallyThink
-- mick mendez (@mendez243) April 13, 2016
Was it even neccessary?! Perhaps not.
Is the reconstruction necessary? I think we all get how asking questions works #WhatBritishMuslimsReallyThink

Then this guy managed to answer the whole conundrum with one simple point.
