Australia, Fired Because of a Cartoon Spoof on Vaccine: Cartoonist Michael Loenig’s Story Goes Around the World

“My job is to challenge the status quo, and that has always been the work of a cartoonist,” said famous cartoonist Michael Loenig.

Well-known cartoonist Michael Leonig It was removed from the Australian newspaper Age to create a file cartoon which semi-resistanceVaccination commitment to fight for democracy in a Tiananmen Square. In a photo posted on his Instagram account leunigstudio, he depicted a lone protester in front of a tank, instead of a cannon, which was equipped with a giant syringe. It is a great imitation of the iconic scene of the famous “Tank Man”, an unknown Chinese national who has gone down in history.

The cartoon immediately caused such a stir that The Age did not publish it in its newspaper, but rather used a vague phrase to announce a possible chapter: “We are trying new cartoonists”. And just in these hours, Leonig confirmed to the Australian press that he would be relieved of the prestigious position from Monday due to “His design would have upset many fans”. “The company believes that this type of storyboard does not align with the general sentiment and readers of The Age, who appear to be largely in favor of Andrews Covid’s narrative (Editor, Daniel Andrews). Michael Loenig said. But my job is to challenge the status quo, and that has always been the work of a cartoonist.” The comedian “Tank Man” also caused a split among fans on his Instagram page, with some cheering his calling. “Bright” NS “nailed it”while others saw it ‘bad taste’ And it was ‘Disgusting comparison’.
