“A Canadian cartoonist’s contract was terminated Friday by a New Brunswick publishing company after he posted an illustration of Donald Trump playing golf over the drowned bodies of two migrants. As a result, the cartoonist’s work will no longer appear in four prominent Canadian publications.

The image referred to a photo published last week of Oscar Alberto Martinez and his 23-month-old daughter face down on the bank of the Rio Grande, drowned in attempts to cross the river from Mexico into Texas.

In the cartoon, Trump, golf club in hand, is saying, “Do you mind if I play through?”

The cartoonist, Michael de Adder, tweeted that every Trump cartoon he has submitted in the past year has been axed by the publishing company, Brunswick News Inc.

“It got to the point where I didn’t submit any Donald Trump cartoons for fear that I might be fired,” he said in a follow-up tweet.”
