PHOTO: ‘Non-Sequitur’ Cartoon Dropped by Butler Eagle Newspaper for Hidden Message That Says ‘We Fondly Say Go F-ck Yourself to Trump’

Worth it.

A Pennsylvania newspaper fired one of its political cartoonists after readers complained about an expletive-laden jab at President Donald Trump the artist incorporated into his Sunday comic strip.

Cartoonist Wiley Miller, whose syndicated Non Sequitur political cartoon series appears in more than 700 newspapers nationwide, was axed from The Butler Eagle after readers called the paper and said they were offended.

In a Twitter post on Sunday, Miller encouraged readers to color in the picture and find the little Easter egg” spoken by character Leonardo Bear-Vinci.

The insult, which appeared in the bottom righthand corner of the cartoon, read:

“We fondly say go f*ck yourself to Trump.”

Yeah, and? Non Sequitur fans loved it.

Is it really that big of a deal?

On the other hand, supporters of the president – fully willing to dismiss Trump’s own pattern of crass remarks and racist behavior – on Twitter were quick to condemn the cartoon.
