Jason Chatfield ‘New Yorker’ Cartoon Offends Some

Cartoonist, shampoo actor and noted Australian Jason Chatfield was recently taken to task by a group of individuals who were offended by a recent New Yorker cartoon he created.

From Jason’s blog:

As a rule, I never engage in social media comments sections– especially when it comes to my work. I like people to just fight among themselves about it and watch from the bleachers. But this time around was different. People weren’t just content to just tell me what I was, based on their interpretation of the cartoon, then they started trawling through my social media profiles, reaching out to my wife and telling her she should be ‘ashamed for marrying such a woman-hating c*nt”. Not just one person- more than 5.

What a load of nonsense.

If you can switch the two genders and the joke is the same it’s NOT sexist you idiots.

My God. Is this who we’ve become? I weep for my children.

Not to mention there are members of both genders in both sections.

What’s truly offensive is that there are no Asians or Hispanics represented. Does Jason hate them as much as he clearly hates women?

I saw this go down in Instagram. Strange times. As Matt Groening said recently, “I think particularly right now, people feel so aggrieved and crazed and powerless that they’re picking the wrong battles.”
