TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC)- The University of Alabama student newspaper issued an apology Thursday after an editorial cartoon stirred controversy.
The cartoon depicts an Alabama player unable to stop an Auburn player in the Iron Bowl. But it's the caption, "This Is What Happens in Obama's America," that has some people riled up.
Once the paper hit newstands, some readers were shocked to see it. Others say it's meant to be satire, but they can see where people may think differently.
"Obviously the joke is that Obama can be blamed for things that have nothing to do with him," Sho Asa, a student said. "It supposed to be a joke but it can kinda be taken too far."
"It's supposed to be a joke, but its kinda dumb. Thats just my opinion," Patrick Gordon, another UA student told FOX6.
