#MuslimApologies Highlights The Absurdity Of Blaming An Entire Religion For Actions Of Few

There is nothing funny about Islamophobia -- but there may just be a way to use humor to combat it.

In the wake of the Islamic State, Muslims around the world have found themselves in the spotlight for the offenses of a violent minority they want nothing to do with.

Many officials and activists have taken a stand against the religious profiling that has increased since ISIS became part of public discourse. But others have taken a more viral approach to spread awareness about Islam with tongue-in-cheek humor, spawning the hashtag #MuslimApologies.

Their message?

All Muslims should not have to apologize for the actions of a few. And there is a lot more to Islam than the rampant stereotypes.

Take a look at some of the hashtag's best tweets, and you'll see why:
