When celebs speak up to defend Islam

We are used to hear the most downright offensive and racist comments about Islam in the news, with the usual misconceptions that tag along.. terrorism, jihadists, cutting off hands, oppressed women, etc etc. Nothing new here.
So, when (non-Muslim) celebrities raise their voices to defend Islam, I'm all ears!

Recently, many A-list singers, sportsmen and actors showed their support on social media to #FreePalestine and end the ongoing war in Gaza. From Madonna to Javier Bardem, their support certainly enlightened many and helped educate the masses. Another propaganda?

But every now and then a more profound, passionate, angry and REAL retort makes headlines, just like Ben Affleck on the TV show "Real Time with Bill Maher" on HBO, Russell Brand on his daily show "The Trews" and a few others.

Watch Ben Affleck lose his temper against stereotypes on Muslims:
