The Sunday Mail has been roundly lambasted on Twitter today after its front page asked, without irony, what has become of the “tolerant Britain we love”.
James Felton was among a large swathe of people who posted numerous intolerant headlines that have become a mainstay in the publication over the past few years.
He said: “The Mail only sells because we aren’t a tolerant nation.
“If we were they’d have f*cked off long before they even had the chance to go all “hurrah for the blackshirts”.”

Irish actor and comedian Chris O’Dowd also posted a humorous response, along with several others:

Who wants to tell the Mail on Sunday that they destroyed it? pic.twitter.com/05zoVMvutN— John West ? ? (@JohnWest_JAWS) June 13, 2020

Guys, have you ever looked at your paper's front pages over the last 50 years?? You did this.
