Original cartoon post

Mr. Latuff told BC he does not plan to remove the cartoon from twitter. He has responded to twitter but has not received a response.

Recep Tayyip Erdoğan is a Turkish politician
who has been the 12th President of Turkey since 2014. 
The cartoon about Erdogan and ISIS, published in 2015.

Below is the email notice Latuff received from @twitter

Carlos Latuff, a cartoonist, artist and activist based in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Latuff has spent the last 15 plus years crafting a style that can best be described as “populist cartooning.” He has touched on issues like Apartheid in South Africa, the plight of Native Americans in the US and the oppression of Tibetans in China.

But perhaps his most controversial series to date is “We are all Palestinians,” in which he compares the actions taken by the Israeli government towards Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip directly to the Nazi’s treatment of Jews.  Contact Mr. Latuff and BC.
