A long-running comic in the LA Times was cancelled due to the use of an ethnic slur.
This comic had run there for 10-20 years (I don't know exactly). I attach the offending comic also as a pdf.
Apparently, there is some disagreement
on the severity of the slur. Even accepting that it is a slur, does the punishment (cancellation) seem proportionate?
From a google, I see only one other historical incident with this comic from 2012, where some readers were offended:
