Comments:  | Leave A Comment

A Belgian newspaper is under fire for an image it printed showing President Barack Obama and the First Lady as apes.

The progressive newspaper De Morgen is being accused of racism for the image along with an article it published just prior to Obama’s visit to the Netherlands Monday morning.

The image clearly depicts the couple as two apes– an editorial decision that has been slammed as “stale racist drivel.”

Nigerian-born author Chika Unigwe tweeted a photo of the spread.
