AZIZ ANSARI IS the latest celebrity to rant about Rupert Murdoch on Twitter after the businessman’s controversial ‘jihadist cancer’ tweet.

Murdoch has been widely condemned for his response to the Charlie Hebdo attacks:

Yesterday, JK Rowling said that as a born Christian, she would “auto-excommunicate” if Rupert Murdoch was her “responsibility”.

It seems actor/comedian Aziz Ansari agrees, as he went on a lengthy Twitter tirade last night against the media magnate, calling him a ‘racist piece of sh*t’.

It all started last night when Murdoch attempted to go back on his words by praising the “heroic sacrifice” of the Muslim police officer, Ahmed Merabet, who was killed during the attacks:

“Rups can we get a step by step guide? How can my 60-year-old parents in NC help destroy terrorist groups? Plz advise [sic],” he tweeted.

Ansari then went on to ask why, as a Catholic, Murdoch was not out “hunting paedophiles”.

Oof. Ansari wins this round, we think.
