On August 16, 2016, an American ISIS supporter posted the cover of the latest issue of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo. The magazine’s headquarters were a target of the January 2015 terror attacks in Paris. The cover of this issue of the magazine, published August 10, 2016, depicted a nude Muslim man and woman running into the ocean, with the caption “The reform of Islam: Muslims loosen up.”  In response to the Facebook post, a discussion developed on his page, on Charlie Hebdo in general and on how to fight an enemy. Some commenters promoted violent means, and issued threats against the magazine.
