No More “Everybody Draw Muhammed Day”

This is hardly new news, but appears to have gone under the radar:

In declaring May 20th to be “Everybody Draw Muhammad Day,” Seattle artist Molly Norris created a poster-like cartoon showing many objects — from a cup of coffee to a box of pasta to a tomato — all claiming to be the likeness of Muhammad.

Following controversy, she has backtracked, and when asked about her change of heart, Norris told The Ticket that she didn’t intend for the cartoon “to go viral”: “This particular cartoon of a ‘poster’ seems to have struck a gigantic nerve, something I was totally unprepared for,” she said.

I recommend everyone continue on and draw Muhammed on May 20. Don’t give in to terrorists.
