Here is Molly Norris‘ response to this whole debacle:
My one-off cartoon of a fictional poster is bad as a long-term plan.
The vitriol this ‘day’ has brought out, of people who only want to draw obscene images,
is offensive to all of the Muslims who did nothing to endanger our rights of expression in the first place. Only Viacom and Revolution Muslim are to blame, so write to them instead!
I rue the day I went on the Dave Ross show.
My ego took me there and I let myself get side swiped.
I never wanted to lead a movement.
I make cartoons about current events and that’s what I do best.
This is the only cartoon of mine that has ever left my home town — unfortunately!
What’s really upsetting is that these images are equivalent to drawings of Jesus bungee jumping or skiing. There’s nothing inherently disrespectful. Please write a Comment.
