In its latest edition, the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo portrayed the victims of the deadly earthquake that shook Italy as popular Italian dishes, sparking great controversy. More than 300 people were killed in the earthquake.

The cartoon titled “Earthquake, Italian-style” shows victims covered in blood. One of the victims is labeled: “Pasta with tomato sauce.” Another person is described as a different pasta dish while a pile of victims trapped underneath the rubble of a collapsed building is described as lasagna.

Many in Italy were outraged by the controversial cartoon. Amatrice Mayor Sergio Pirozzi said: “The cartoon is embarrassing satire.” The mayor added: “Irony is always welcome but you can’t satirize disasters that claimed the lives of people.”
