The comedian took to social media to have his say on the devastating events that are still gripping the French capital – but was quickly branded ‘Islamophobic’.

While it’s still unconfirmed who is behind the attacks, France’s President Francois Hollande has blamed ISIS for murders of 127 people.

In his original post, Jason fumed: “Fking cowards. Slaughtering innocent unarmed people for what? Families and children enjoy life, theatre, meals? Not an army vs army you fking cowards.

“For what? In whose name? Are you doing this in the name of your god? Cos I’ve got news for you, if you think your ‘god’ is gonna reward you for this type of atrocity then your god is a massive c**t.”

Jason added: “I hope you are all caught and murdered in a similar agonising way you f**king scumbags.”

The dad-of-three’s profile was swiftly removed following his rant and he later took to Twitter to defend his actions, after some claimed he was being Islamophibic.

He wrote: “I’d say the same no matter what religion. My track record is proof enough to know that I simply dislike extremists. As we all do.

“You’re obviously very upset so I will leave you to it. I apologise if I caused you any more upset on such a horrible evening. xx [sic].”
