DODWORTH, UK (WTXF) British war veteran, Chris Herbert, who lost his leg in Basra, Iraq, in 2007 in a roadside bomb has taken to Facebook about his frustration with anti-Muslim comments.
In his post he expressed his anger towards anti-Muslim sentiment and those who expect him to feel a certain way due to his combat experience. Herbert lost his leg to a roadside bomb while serving overseas.
Herbert posted about his grievances on December 8, saying, “blaming all Muslims for the actions of groups like Daeshe and the Taliban, is like blaming all Christians for the actions of the KKK or Westboro Baptist Church.”
As of this writing, Herbert’s post has since gone viral. It has over 68,000 shares and 700,000 likes since it was posted and continues to gain publicity. The responses have been mixed, however, Herbert remains firm in his beliefs.
