Zapiro has gone too far
By Mike Smith
6th of July 2012
You know, I quite like old Jonathan Shapiro (Zapiro), the cartoonist from the Mail & Guardian and over the years he has really stuck it to the ANC and their cronies…
…But this time he has really gone too far. He has portrayed President Jacob Zuma as a dick!!! I have to express my utter disgust with his latest cartoon. How could Zapiro stoop so damn low to do this?
I mean a dick is useful. Comparing Jacob Zuma to a dick is an insult to dicks the world over.
I am also a dick and I take serious offense to this cartoon.
Just imagine if you were a dick how you would have felt being compared to a useless piece of trash such as JZ. Dicks have feelings too you know.
It does not matter what a dirty dick you are, what a rude dick you are, as far as I am concerned, no dick deserves to be treated like this. It simply cannot carry on like this and as a proud dick myself, I have to take a firm and hard stand against this vile dick-bashing. This cartoon was totally uncalled for.
I am all for free speech and free expression, but Zapiro has misused his freedom to viciously attack and offend dicks. This is not satire. This is not holding the mirror up to them...This is anti-dick hatespeech of the worst order and dick hatred pure.
I just hope that Jonathan Shapiro can find it in his heart to apologize unreservedly for his latest cartoon. He and the M&G most probably will get sued by some dicks now, but then again they asked for it. There are some things in this world that one simply does not do…and I am sorry, but insulting a dick like this is one of them.
