As we reported earlier, The Sun is no longer going to feature topless models on Page 3 – although they are still going to feature hot babes in bras and panties so not really that much has changed.
However, this hasn’t stopped a bunch of people on Twitter being completely outraged by the change and blaming it on Muslims and ‘Creeping Sharia Law’, although anyone with half a brain cell should know that scantily clad women appearing in print would still be under violation of most interpretations of Sharia Law.
Here are some of the dumbest reactions to the news that we’ve seen so far today. Some of these might be ironic, but I fear that a lot of them aren’t.

Welcome to the sharia law compliance. The Sun calls time on topless Page 3 models after 44 years http://t.co/9BFuVRK538

If we end today and nobody's made a link between Page 3 and Sharia Law overtaking UK, I'll feel let down by the internet.

Muslims are offended and do not like to see any form of nudity remember, that is why all outdoor swimming pools… http://t.co/HWIPvxnSER

Did the Sun capitulate on page 3 after Muslims (corner shops ) started refusing to sell the paper? #islamificationUK

Page 3 ditched because of upsetting Muslims.
