If you, like us, stayed up late last night to watch the Met Gala 2018 unfold on social media, you wouldn’t have been wrong to assume we were in for a disappointing night.Initial red carpet arrivals elicited disappointment on Twitter, with the main qualm being that guest weren’t taking the theme – ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination’ – seriously enough.YouTuber Liza Koshy unfortunately caught most of the flack and was the subject of hundreds of memes for her less-than-creative outfit choice.

[Photo: Instagram/Susan Carland] As a woman who decided to convert from Christianity to Islam, Susan Carland often finds herself on the receiving end of hateful tweets from those who don’t agree with her decision. Despite the fact that she became a Muslim 15 years ago, when she was 19, people won’t stop hating on her religious beliefs and choice of dress. “I am just a blank canvas onto which they can project their own prejudices and fantasies about Muslims,” Carland, a sociologist living in Melbourne, wrote on The Age website. “Their online abuse ranges from requests to leave Australia, hope for my death, insults about my appearance (with a special focus on my hijab), accusations that I am a stealth jihadist, and that I am planning to take over the nation, one halal meat pie at a time.”
