On Tuesday, one of the world's most beloved comedians Robin Williams passed away that shocked and saddened his fans everywhere.

While social media was abuzz with the celebrations of Williams' contribution as a comedic genius, there was one uncanny Williams' fan who stood out.

A Twitter user by the name of Abdullah with the handle @Mujahid4life, who is Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) member, took his precious time away from extremist propaganda and tweeted the following

"Good movie. Loved it as a kid."

That someone who follows Islamic fundamentalism which shuns and abhors everything about Western culture took several on the social media by shock, disbelief, even surprise.

Abdullah probably missed the irony and found reactions to his tweet rather funny.

While acknowledging his childhood love for the movie, Abdullah made it clear where he stands on Robin Williams. There was no evident conflict about his jihadist views and childlike wonder for films.

However, pretty soon, discussions on popular films between other Twitter users including fellow Islamic fundamentalists and him began as effortlessly and naturally it happens with any other film buffs. Abdullah responded to almost every film query.

From Toy Story,

To everyone's favourite Harry Potter

What he thought of famous psychopathic characters

On Schindler's list

The 'jihadist' seemed like quite a fan of rom-coms too 

Some questions were just to obvious

Abdullah still couldn't fathom why jihadists couldn't be Hollywood consumers too

And he couldn't believe the kind of attention he was receiving.

Looking for a jihadist who is a movie critic? The search is over

But he remembered his true calling

So why can a jihadist love Hollywood? Why not?

It turned out that our hardcore jihadist, is an armchair jihadist, who tweets on 'news' about ISIS
