Charlie Hebdo's Italian quake victims

Charlie Hebdo changed up it's focus to Italian earthquake victims with cartoons of the dead portrayed as different types of pasta. Italians that supported Hebdo after the hit by extremists with France have changed up their focus too. Italy is NOT happy with Charlie Hebdo.

That magazine is becoming the Westboro Baptist Church of magazines. Always crossing the line for shock value to get in the news. Charlie Hebdo, we were with you when you had your tragedy. Why can't you feel for others when they do? Joking about earthquake victims? That's bush league.

I sympathized with them when they were attacked but to make fun of people killed in an earthquake is too much. Wonder if they would have found it funny if people had made fun of their dead when they were attacked.

Of course they have the right to do this just like we have the right to call them insensitive, nuts or stupid for doing so but we don't have the right to kill them for it.

The "cartoons" speak volumes. I support free expression but I do have a moral red line. Charlie Hebdo crossed that line and kept walking. If all they want is shock then they totally do have mine. My brain can't even begin to wrap around what Hebdo did. Imo, those "artists" should be living in garbage landfills, not houses. Any respect I had for those people is totally gone.
