No stranger to provocative magazine covers, Newsweek's latest issue features a large photo of angry-looking, bearded protesters headlined "MUSLIM RAGE." The article, written by Ayaan Hirsi Ali, looks at the violent protests that rocked the Middle East last week.
Newsweek then invited the Twitterverse to discuss their cover story with the hashtag #MuslimRage.

Twitter users reacted, but maybe not the way Newsweek intended them to, with many tweeting sarcastic and light-hearted instances when one might experience "Muslim Rage."
Here are a few examples:
