From Columbia Reports—
“As Colombia´s election race is heating up, some leading public personalities abandon social media amid threats and harassment from political fanatics and extremists.
One of the country’s most famous political cartoonists, Julio Gonzalez, a.k.a. “Matador,” announced on Tuesday that he would stop publishing his cartoons on social media.
According to the political satirist, he has received death threats over his criticism of conservative presidential candidate Ivan Duque and hard-right former President Alvaro Uribe.
The death threats followed an attempt by a supporter of Duque and Uribe to ban a cartoon in which Duque was depicted as a pig.”
