Draw the Prophet Muhammad Day reactions.

Plans for the "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day" contest drew an angry reaction, provoking street demonstrations in the Muslim majority country.

On Wednesday, Lahore High Court responded to a petition by the Muslim Lawyers Movement, ordering Pakistan's internet regulator to block the entire site.

Users lost access to Facebook about two hours later.

Rai Bashir, a lawyer involved in the case, said the site was blasphemous.

My guess is this won't actually rile that many people up, cause they'll be too busy doing whatever it is they do everyday. Good.
