The satirical French newspaper "Charlie Hebdo" sparked outrage on Turkish social media platforms, after it published a cartoon mocking the victims of the earthquake that struck a number of southern states in Turkey.
The Charlie Hebdo newspaper published, on its Twitter account, a caricature entitled "Today's Drawing", which showed a number of buildings destroyed by the earthquake in Turkey, and commented on the drawing, "There is no need to send tanks."
And the French journalist, Faiza Ben Mohamed, considered that “Charlie Hebdo” has become a real disgrace to France because of its almost daily incitement to hate speech, adding, “Despite all this, some still blame me because I was not with Charlie,” referring to the solidarity campaigns following the armed attack. On the newspaper's headquarters in 2015.
The Turkish journalist, Shafak Malatya, confirmed that he is well aware of what Charlie Hebdo is trying to achieve, hoping that its press staff would act more humanely, as was the French rescue team that moved from Toulouse to Istanbul and then to Adana.
And the British writer, Hamza Tsurtzes, stated on his Twitter account, that what Charlie Hebdo did is further evidence of the death of civilization in secular France.
Charlie Hebdo has previously sparked anger more than once because of its controversial cartoons, especially those targeting religious figures.
