French satirical newspaper Charlie Hebdo, victim of a deadly attack by islamist militants in 2015 for its irreverent humor, was criticized by Italians Friday for portraying victims of an earthquake that killed almost 300 people as different types of pasta. The cartoon was titled "Earthquake Italian style". While many Italians showed solidarity with the magazine after the 2015 attack, writing "Je suis Charlie Hebdo" (I am Charlie Hebdo) on social media, the cartoon in the magazine's current edition was called "terrible," "in bad taste," and "disrespectful" on Twitter, Facebook and elsewhere.Charlie Hebdo responded to the controversy by publishing yet another earthquake cartoon on its Facebook page that refers to the fact that in the past organized crime has been found to control various Italian construction companies.
