It was bound to happen.
World’s Ballsiest Magazine Puts a Gay Muhammed on Its Cover
Gawker: Last week, the editorial offices of French satire magazine Charlie Hebdo were firebombed after the release of an issue “guest edited” by Muhammed. (“100 lashes if you don’t die of laughter!” said the cartoon Muhammed on the cover.)
The magazine’s website was taken over shortly after that by a Turkish hackers group, who left a threatening message reading, “You keep abusing Islam’s almighty Prophet with disgusting and disgraceful cartoons using excuses of freedom of speech…Be God’s Curse On You! We Will be Your Curse on Cyber World!” Politicians and the media came out in support of the magazine’s right to free speech, while French Muslim groups decried racism. Amidst it all and against all odds, the newly homeless Hebdo got its next issue out on schedule. Yup! There it is, the new cover, right above us. This is not going to end well.
