How on Earth do they call this journalism?

The worst type of clickbait I have yet seen. Hint despite the URL and title there is no release date beyond "2017" and "speculation" of 2016 and confirmation that currently there is no tour planned.

Apparently there's a Twitter dedicated to 'exposing' Jamie Hewlett for his racial stereotyping against Korea in the Book of Russel.

After what happened with the Stylo car, I guess it makes sense for them to partner with a car company... Tiny Jaguar models for all sub division members!

Well, I'm not surprised. These days you can't make anything without someone getting offended.

The weird thing about that is that it looks to be run by South Koreans.

i thought they didn't like north korea either, idgi

1. it's jamie's art, not damon's.
2. jamie was making fun of north korea, not south.

I'm more worried about the massive amounts of human rights violations in an awful totalitarian government than a few people getting offended over Jamie making fun of them.

Hope people who are all upset over it don't watch The Interview, they may just be triggered to death.

I don't think the cartoon makes fun of Koreans. They make fun of a dictatorial regime and that's fair game.

Let's not forget that this wasn't just Jamie's art. Real people were used in the artworks (heck, Jamie himself even showed up in the book of noodle!). I can't say for certain, but the people used in the book of russel were likely actual koreans.
