Philly Inquirer apologizes for publishing editorial cartoon with ‘antisemitic tropes’: ‘We hear the outcry’

The Philadelphia Inquirer apologized for publishing an editorial cartoon that pushed “antisemitic tropes” this week.

The editorial board for the big city paper put out a piece expressing regret for posting cartoonist Monte Wolverton’s illustration on Tuesday. The cartoon criticized Israel’s response to Hamas’ murder of around 1300 people in the Jewish state.

“It is clear this cartoon was highly insensitive, particularly at the current moment when antisemitism is on the rise. We hear the outcry and apologize for the pain it caused,” the editorial declared.
