Campus Cartoon Controversy Continues

Students at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill protest the school’s newspaper after it prints a cartoon of the prophet Muhammad.

WTVD-TV cites an Associated Press report that student protesters entered the office of The Daily Tar Heel and said they wouldn’t leave until the publication apologized for running an editorial cartoon showing a turban-wearing man between two mosque windows.

The story goes on to say a protest organizer helped collect 100 signatures on a petition from people pledging to boycott the paper until an apology is printed.

The editor-in-chief of the student newspaper says he’s sorry if anyone was offended, but won’t print an apology. He says the newspaper has always been a forum of expression and a place to challenge social ideals, the article adds.
