The Globe & Mail pulls Batman cartoon

With notes from the Jim Romenesko blog.

The public editor for the Toronto-based Globe and Mail writes: “In light of the shooting in Colorado, editors have removed Friday’s editorial cartoon, which contained references to the new Batman movie.”

A Romenesko reader sends it:

Brian Gable, The Globe and Mail

On the same day Serge Chapleau of Montreal's La Presse drew Toronto's mayor Rob Ford in a Batman outfit:

Shooting in Toronto: Mayor wants to chase gangs from town.

Since the shooting happened at midnight, any normal reader would have surmised that the editorial cartoons were drawn beforehand.
