Scandalous Caricature from the French Magazine Charlie Hebdo; They Made Fun of the Earthquake!

The French magazine Charlie Hebdo, which previously published ugly cartoons insulting the beliefs of Muslims, has signed another scandal. In its latest cartoon, the magazine made fun of the earthquakes that destroyed 10 provinces of Turkey, in which thousands of people lost their lives. In the cartoon published by the magazine, ruined buildings were drawn and “There is no need to send a tank” was written on it. Here is that scandalous earthquake cartoon…

Earthquakes with a magnitude of 7.7 and 7.6, the epicenter of which is Kahramanmaras, caused the death of thousands of people in 10 cities of Turkey and Syria. While Turkey was mobilizing for the earthquake with the support of all its institutions and the public, messages of support poured in from all over the world.


The French magazine Charlie Hebdo, which previously published cartoons insulting the beliefs of Muslims, mocked the earthquake and published a provocative cartoon as the ‘drawing of the day’.


In the drawing, which is far from humanity and conscience, ruined buildings were depicted, and the phrase ‘Turkey earthquake’ was included, and “There is no need to even send a tank” was written as a comment. The controversial cartoon was also published on the magazine’s Twitter account.
