So, I sort of feel like I’m three weeks late to the surprise party. Here’s the latest ‘apology’ (?) from Molly Norris:
|I did NOT ‘declare’ May 20 to be “Everybody Draw Mohammed Day.”
I made a cartoon about the television show South Park being censored.
The cartoon-poster, with a fake ‘group’ behind it, went viral and was taken seriously.
I never started a facebook page; a stranger did and there is nothing I can do about it.My one-off cartoon of a fictional poster does not work well as a long-term plan.
The vitriol this ‘day’ has brought out, of people who only want to draw obscene images,
is offensive to the Muslims who did nothing to endanger our right to expression in the first place. Only Viacom and Revolution Muslim are to blame, so write to them instead!I apologize to people of Muslim faith and ask that this ‘day’ be called off.
Thank you to those who are turning this crazy thing into an opportunity for dialogue, education and solutions.
Pretty sure it’s real, but not confirmed.
The best comment that was posted said:
“Fight for the right to draw Mohammed, but then decline doing so.”
