America has responded with shock and disgust over a cartoon depiction of tennis star Serena Williams which has been labelled "racist" and "sexist".
The caricature was published alongside unflattering cartoons of US President Donald Trump and North Korean Leader Kim Jong-un.
"If the self-appointed censors of Mark Knight get their way on his Serena Williams cartoon, our new politically correct life will be very tiresome indeed", the paper wrote in an editorial on its front page.
"I think it's really interesting that the Herald Sun has not included really any other caricatures or cartoons of black people - either Aboriginal people or African-American people, black people of any descent", Clarke, who is of Afro-Caribbean descent, told Australian Broadcasting Corp.
And the cartoonist, Mark Knight, said he had "no knowledge of those cartoons or that [Jim Crow] period".
Drawn by Fairfax illustrator David Pope, the cartoon replaces Williams with News' supremo Rupert Murdoch who, in turn, is now having a tantrum that his publication, the Herald Sun, isn't getting its way.
The image triggered widespread allegations of racism against illustrator Mark Knight. You stole a point from me.
The Herald Sun pushed back even further by predictably trying to minimize critics as being overly PC and showcasing other cartoons they've done.
"It rightly mocks poor behavior by a tennis legend", Johnson tweeted.
Williams was later handed a point penalty for smashing her racquet in set two and was then docked a game after continuing her protests at Ramos, seemingly calling the official a "thief".
Rowling led widespread criticism of its Monday cartoon, saying it had reduced "one of the greatest sportswomen alive to racist and sexist tropes".
"I saw the world number one tennis player have a huge hissy fit and spit the dummy". "I drew her as this powerful figure, which she is, she's strongly built. So if you're a mediocre, middle-class, typically white male cartoonist who wants to pretend there's no racist genealogy to what you do, well I'm afraid the joke is on you".
Herald Sun editor Damon Johnston also defended the cartoon. "This classic Jim Crow era sexist/racist image does nothing but display the complete disrespect of the superstar and perpetuate the stereotype of an "angry black woman" I am appalled", wrote Jevin Hodge, the vice-chair of the Arizona Democratic Party.
