Does my nose look big in this?

September 12, 2018

American online activists have expressed their outrage over a cartoon depiction of tennis star Serena Williams which has been called “racist” and “sexist”.

Conservative Party leader Cory Bernardi has always fought against political correctness and the "victim" culture and moved in the Senate on Wednesday afternoon to defend Herald Sun cartoonist Mark Knight, freedom of speech, expression and the press.

News Corp reports, the cartoon has created uproar in the United States with commentators saying it is an example of Australia’s “blind racism”.

The furore comes as Knight, a respected cartoonist with Melbourne-based newspaper The Herald Sun, deleted his Twitter account and the paper doubled down on the cartoon with an editorial front page attacking political correctness.

Herald Sun editor Damon Johnston tweeted an image overnight of today’s provocative front page (above).

“Welcome to PC World,” the headline reads, accompanied by a “Satire Free Zone” stamp in the foreground.

Senator Bernardi has told Melbourne radio station 3AW's Neil Mitchell he's been lampooned in many cartoons (some of them feature above) and he's not offended by them one jot.
