Some Muslims they are. If you don't even attempt to follow the morality of the religion's given text then you don't deserve to belong to it. And in not deserving to belong to it, you don't belong to it.
For example, there's a guy called Jim. Jim's never read any of the Qu'ran, he doesn't follow it's guides or moral laws in any way. He does what he pleases and doesn't really care about Islam. However, his parents are Islam and he wouldn't want to dishonour them by not being a Muslim. Also, they might try and kill him otherwise.
Therefore, Jim calls himself a Muslim. People think he's a Muslim, people label him because he calls himself a Muslim, and people's views of Islam can be shaped by what Jim does.
One day, Jim decides to rape a girl. In no way is this related to Islam and he isn't doing it because the Qu'ran tells him to. However, because he called himself a Muslim, other people think that Islam encourages rape because Jim raped somebody and he called himself a Muslim.
This happens continuously and will continue to happen for as long as the human mind is alive. It's how we're designed to think. In order to counteract that process of the mind, you must simply be aware of it. If you question yourself as to why you think something of another, and give yourself proper justification as to why you thought it, you can be sure of the accusations you throw instead of throwing them blindly.
