New York Times Slammed for ‘Homophobic’ Trump-Putin Video Cartoon: ‘This Is Beneath Us’

The New York Times is facing heat online over the latest edition of its “Trump Bites” animated op-ed series, which features an extended joke suggesting a gay romance between President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

“This is homophobic,” said Teen Vogue Chief Content Officer Phillip Picardi, echoing the sentiments of many.

“It is implying that being gay is an insult for both of these men. It implies that being gay would emasculate them. It implies that calling them gay together would anger them and incite reaction. This is beneath us,” he added.
