A cartoon featured in state-run Global Times has raised eyebrows on social media for depicting US President Barack Obama in tribal garb ‘back home’ in Kenya.
The image, by Liu Rui, includes no caption, context or commentary but coincides with Obama’s visit to Kenya.
Seriously, this cartoon? https://t.co/7h68s8B9cZ
