China demands apology after Danish satire signing

2020-01-28T12:22:17.378Z

On Monday, the Danish daily Jyllands-posten published a satirical drawing of the Chinese flag, where the flag's stars were replaced by the corona virus. Now China is demanding a public apology from the magazine for the drawing. It reports the Jutland Post.



The Chinese embassy writes in a press release that the drawing has crossed the ethical boundary of freedom of expression and that they demand a public apology from the Jutland Post and the artist who made the drawing. They also write that the drawing is "an insult to China" and that it harms "the Chinese feelings."

The reason for the embarrassment is that the image's cartoonist Niels Bo Bojeson has replaced the five yellow stars with illustrations of the corona virus in his drawing.

The Jutland Post editor-in-chief Jacob Nybroe has told Danish TV2 that the intention was not to mock or ridicule China.

"The cartoonist lacks compassion and sympathy"

The Chinese Chamber of Commerce in Denmark is also critical of the satire drawing, reports the Jutland Post. Secretary of Commerce John Liu writes in a press release, among other things:

“We respect the freedom of speech and in particular the personal freedom to express one's attitude, interpretation and attitude. However, we think that cartoonist Niels Bo Bojesen lacks general education and personal qualities such as compassion and sympathy, ”according to the Jutland Post.
