Oxfam, an organization that purports to address poverty, has sparked controversy with a recently released public service announcement in the form of a cartoon.
The cartoon features a group of malevolent-looking characters who are portrayed as transphobic, openly expressing their disdain for the LGBTQ+ lifestyle. Adding fuel to the fire, one character in the cartoon bears a striking resemblance to the well-known author JK Rowling, wearing a button labeled ‘TERF.’
One of the other characters, an Asian, is depicted with slanted eyes and is understood to be a caricature of journalist Andy Ngo, who covers controversies related to trans ideology.
In response to the backlash, Oxfam has issued an apology for the cartoon.
