Abstract
There are a few taboos that the majority of Egyptians who grew up before and during the 2011 revolution learned to avoid in their discussions. These are politics, religion and sex! But on the 25th of January 2011 a revolution started and disrupted all political and social norms in the country. This research examines how a specific online group used offensive discourse to change the master narrative that defies religion in Egypt.
