Toronto Sun's Kathleen Wynne Cartoon Sparks Controversy


The Toronto Sun sparked controversy Thursday with a controversial cartoon mocking Ontario Liberal Leader Kathleen Wynne.

The illustration by longtime Sun cartoonist Andy Donato — showing broken glasses, bloody teeth and a Wynne pin — ran just two days after the provincial leaders' debate.

Polls from both Ipsos and Forum Research suggest PC Leader Tim Hudak was seen as the night's winner.

While it's not clear if the illustration was making a point about the debate, it nonetheless left more than a few people with the impression the newspaper was making light of violence against women.

Many took to Twitter to deride the cartoon as unacceptable and demand an apology from the newspaper.

But at least one person wondered if there would be such outrage if Hudak was on the receiving end of the insult instead.

Do you think this cartoon crosses the line?
