Is Rageboy the unacceptable face of satire?
 
Rageboy.
Rageboy's creators say they want to mock extremism.
Rageboy is causing something of a stir on the internet at the moment.

It is an image of the face of an angry Moslem protestor and it has been used by rightwingers in the United States to mock Islamic fundamentalists. The face appears on teeshirts and mugs.

There have been claims it is the face of one particular man and that his rights and privacy have been breached.

But the image is still being used and charged for by a group called Nose on your Face.

The World Today spoke to High Pankuck, aka potfry, from Nose on your face together with Ibrahim Hooper, spokesman for the Council on American Islamic Relations.

Hugh Pankuck told us first what or who rageboy is?

First broadcast 16th July.
