After the unspeakable Paris attacks that reportedly left over 100 dead on Friday, according to Agence France-Presse, many are taking to social media to show support for the city.

The viral hashtag #PorteOuverte showed support for Parisians, but that is not the only thing trending on social media following this attack. "Muslims" began trending on Twitter with many people reminding others not to assume the attacks were done by those who practice Islam.
