Twitter users were once again fighting fire with humour as they spent yesterday tweeting with the hashtag #1in5Muslims.

The Sun's front page on Sunday led with the headline '1 in 5 Brit Muslims' sympathy for jihiadis', which went on to be widely discredited in the media.

However, Twitter users were not about to let that lie, and ran with the hashtag #1in5Muslims, tweeting wild claims about people of the Muslim faith in jest.

One user tweeted "#1in5muslims think Ross and Rachel were on a break" while another added "#1in5Muslims wakes up for fajir just to check their notifications and (then) go back to sleep".
