Letter to the editor: Cartoon was insensitive

Thursday, August 28, 2014 - 12:01 am

On Thursday, Aug. 14, (the Journal Gazette) allowed a very hurtful, insensitive and offensive cartoon to be posted on the editorial page concerning the death of Robin Williams.

Williams suffered from the debilitating disease of clinical depression. To belittle his death by suicide in such a childish, inhumane way is uncalled for by your staff. I believe the publisher, editor and all employees of the Journal Gazette owe a huge apology to their readers and the family of Robin Williams. How heartless are you people?
