“I don’t think it’s hateful, I don’t think it’s racist.”

That’s what one Toronto woman had to say about a sign on her property, asking Muslims if they were sorry for the attacks in Paris.

CityNews reporter Avery Haines noticed the sign when she was taking her son to hockey practice on Sunday and tweeted a photo of it.

She then spoke to the woman and her husband, tweeting videos of the encounter.

Others on the social media platform were quick to chime in, with one man posting an article where Muslims had already condemned the attacks. Others said that the couple had every right to post the sign.

The couple posted a new message on their lawn after concern for their safety from their first message.
