charlie hebdo pasta The French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo , has wound a few Italians with its latest issue containing a cartoon portraying victims of an earthquake that killed almost 300 people as different types of pasta.The cartoon was titled Earthquake Italian style . It depicted a balding man standing and covered in blood with the moniker Penne in tomato sauce , a badly scratched up woman next to him labelled Penne au gratin . A pair of feet sticking out between the floors of a collapsed building is entitled Lasagne .

The mayor of Amatrice, a town flattened by last week’s quake, is famous for the pasta sauce, amatriciana, that carries its name. The town’s mayor, Sergio Pirozzi, said:.

How the fuck do you draw a cartoon bout the dead? I’m sure this unpleasant and embarrassing satire does not reflect French sentiment.

The French embassy in Rome published a statement on its website and Twitter, saying the cartoon:

Absolutely does not represent France’s position, and is a caricature by the press (and) the freely expressed opinions are those of the journalists.
