A political cartoon comparing Michelle Obama to Melania Trump has come under fire for being “racist.”
Ben Garrison, the artist who created the cartoon, tweeted it Friday and the crying began almost immediately.

Garrison was also accused of ‘body shaming’ and being ‘misogynistic’ for his depiction of a masculine Obama alongside the beautiful Trump.
@GrrrGraphics and honestly this is racist as hell and reverts back to sterotypes that black women are angry and masculine

@GrrrGraphics why you body shaming? Michelle is BEAUTIFUL and GREAT. And not only that, but a good person. Smh.
