Charlie Hebdo again runs into trouble: new issue features Erdogan’s caricature

The notorious French cartoon magazine Charlie Hebdo features Turkish President Recep Erdogan on the cover of the new issue.


He was painted half-naked. He sits in a chair with a drink in his right hand, and with his left lifts the hem of a woman’s dress with the words: “Oh! And here is the prophet!” The headline reads:

“Erdogan: in private life he is very funny!”

The administration of the Turkish president condemned such actions. In addition, they were called the fruits of the anti-Muslim program of French President Emmanuel Macron.

“We condemn this heinous attempt to spread racism and hatred. The so-called cartoons are disgusting and devoid of any sense of human decency. This is clearly a product of the xenophobic, Islamophobic and intolerant cultural environment that the French leadership seems to want for their country”, – Fahrettin Altun, head of the Liaison Office of the Turkish Presidential Administration, wrote on Twitter.
