WORLD: On Feb 6, a French satirical magazine named Charlie Hebdo posted an insensitive animation on their Twitter.

Posted under the heading of ‘Cartoon of the Day,’ the caricature depicted disaster-stricken Turkey with the caption, ‘No need to send tanks now.’

The cartoon has been drawing flak globally as the Internet community calls out the publication for mocking earthquake victims.

Few others are reporting the account as they think it’s a vile practice of ‘freedom of speech.’

Charlie Hebdo shooting 2015:

Saad and Chérif Kouachi, two French Muslim terrorists and brothers, broke into the Paris headquarters of the French satirical weekly newspaper Charlie Hebdo on January 7, 2015, at around 11:30 a.m. They killed 12 individuals and injured 11 others while using rifles and other weapons. Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula, an Islamic terrorist organisation, claimed responsibility for the incident after the shooters identified themselves as members of their organisation.

Looking back at the attack, Twitterati stated they won’t feel bad if their office is targeted again.
