Social media went into a frenzy over the French magazine’s cover, but some people expressed that viewers of the image who are outraged– missed the point.

Charlie Hedbo is a satirical publication that’s no holds barred when it comes to taking shots at prominent figures. This situation isn’t the magazine’s first outrageous cover.

In 2015, Charlie Hedbo journalists were attacked and killed at its Paris office after two Algerian brothers overran the police officer tasked with protecting staff after threats were made. The men killed 12 employees over offensive images of the Muslim prophet Muhammed.
