image for Caricature of Muhammad Ali Leads To Death Threat
Jared Leto

A cartoon caricature of former World Heavyweight Champion Muhammad Ali which was tweeted to over seven people has led to a death threat against the tweeter in what is being seen as another attack on freedom of speech.

"So what I tweeted a picture of Muhammad, I'm a big fan, good lord he is admired, regarded as one of the best boxers of all time - I don't get it," said Duncan Whitehead.

Many who are angered by the tweet, an expression of free speech, are the same people who are angered by the barbaric and tragic deaths of twelve people, killed because of their stance and belief in...free speech.

"Whitehead has obviously tried to make a joke by tweeting this photo, but it is inappropriate and offensive to use free speech to make a joke about free speech," said one furious tweeter.

Available for comment, Whitehead told reporters "Fuck 'em".
