Tintin comic temporarily pulled from Winnipeg Chapters over racism complaint

A First Nations educator asked a Winnipeg Chapters to pull the comic Tintin in America from its shelves on Saturday, citing “the impact of racist images and perpetuating harmful narratives.” At first, Chapters pulled the book, but it is now back on the shelves after the chain determined it does not violate its policy.

The cover image depicts stereotypical images of indigenous people in buckskin, and a chief brandishing an axe over his head while Tintin is tied to a post in the background.


Why are they complaining? They had Tin Tin tied to a stake! He should be the one launching a hate crime case!

    And the CBC ran the “offensive” images.
