Violence and homophobia are serious issues that affect everyone, plague our society, and they should not be tolerated coming from University of Arizona supported public media.

 

Script of The Cartoon:

Father: Ya know son...
If you ever tell me you're gay...
I will shoot you with my shotgun, roll you up in a carpet and throw you off of a bridge...

Son: Well I guess that's what you call a "Fruit Roll Up!"

Father and Son: Ahh Ha ha ha Ha ha... bwah Ha Ha ha Ha ha haa!!

Condoning violence and homophobia by allowing this to cartoon to run is reprehensible and cannot be tolerated as acceptable with a simple apology or explanation.

Dear Arizona Daily Wildcat,

Fire your cartoonist, editor-in-chief, and copy editor. Condoning violence and homophobia by allowing this cartoon to run is reprehensible and cannot be tolerated as acceptable with the offering of a simple apology or explanation. As students of the University of Arizona and/or concerned individuals, we demand that further action be taken on this issue!
