A Vermont newspaper is apologizing to readers after publishing an offensive cartoon related to the Las Vegas shooting in its Tuesday print edition.
Under the heading, “Whatever happens in Vegas…,” the cartoon depicts dozens of bodies strewn across the ground. The cartoon appeared in the print edition of the Bennington Banner on Tuesday and was quickly criticized as depicting those who were killed Sunday night in Las Vegas while attending the Route 91 Harvest festival.
An apology online identified Randall Enos as the artist behind the cartoon. Enos’ work is distributed by Cagle Cartoons, a California-based cartoon distribution company.
