Since last week the entire city of Paris and the world have been mourning. Everyone around the globe have been supporting France in this time of need. John Oliver gave gave a “moment of premium cable profanity.” Saturday Night Live opened its most recent episode with a simple but very moving message for the people of France. A pianist drove over 400 miles to perform an emotional performance of John Lennon’s “Imagine.”
Charlie Hebdo, whose French headquarters were the site of a terrorist attack earlier this year, has now unveiled their first cover since Friday’s attacks. It was officially shared by Charlie Hebdo‘s employee Mathieu Madénian on Tuesday. The cover shows a man dancing while downing champagne that quickly escapes through what looks like bullet holes in his body. The cover’s text, which is in French, translates to:
“They’ve got the guns. Fuck them. We have the champagne.”
On January 7, 2015, 12 people were killed at the Charlie Hebdo offices in Paris after reportedly being targeted for its controversial covers of the Prophet Mohammed. The massacre quickly inspired the hashtag #jesuischarlie (“I am Charlie”) and inspired another equally conversation worthy cover from Charlie Hebdo shortly after.
