New York Times apologizes for anti-Semitic cartoon featuring Trump, Netanyahu
The New York Times on Saturday apologized for publishing an anti-Semitic cartoon in its international print edition featuring Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and US President Donald Trump.
The cartoon, which appeared in Thursday’s newspaper, depicted Netanyahu as a guide dog wearing a Star of David collar and leading a blind Trump - who was wearing a kippah, or a Jewish skullcap.
In an apology published on Twitter by the Times’s opinion section - which will also appear in print on Monday - the newspaper said the drawing “included anti-Semitic tropes.”
“The image was offensive, and it was an error of judgment to publish it,” it added.
