Rees & Kupperman comic ‘too sensitive’ for New York Times?

by  in Comic News Comment

“See Something, Say Something,” the biweekly comic by David Rees and Michael Kupperman, was missing Sunday from The New York Times’ Week in Review because, Kupperman says, editors deemed its subject matter “too sensitive.”

The strip, titled “Testosterone Entitlement Theatre Presents the Man Babies in ‘Hashtag Harassment,'” addresses specifically critics of the recent “#YesAllWomen” Twitter hashtag, and more broadly male entitlement.

“I disagree very strongly with that decision, because I feel David was making a point that deserves to be made,” Kupperman wrote on his blog, under the headline “The Comic Not Fit to Print. “So I went ahead and completed the script as written; here it is, see for yourselves.”

Rees (Get Your War On) and Kupperman (Tales Designed to Thrizzle) debuted their Week in Review comic in January.
