The New York Post prompted outrage Wednesday after publishing a front page photograph of slain photojournalist James Foley seconds before he was beheaded by a Islamic State militant.
-- Due to its graphic nature, TheBlaze has chosen not to publish the image. Those who want to view the cover can click here (warning graphic content) --
Individuals turned to Twitter to blast the tabloid New York newspaper, calling the cover "disrespectful" and "disgraceful."
The front page of the New York Post today is disgraceful— Michael van Poppel (@mpoppel) August 20, 2014
So, @nypost have printed a full front-page pic of Foley's murder, which I don't recommend you click on but do recommend you get angry about.— Tom Chivers (@TomChivers) August 20, 2014
.@nypost has used extremely graphic photo of James Foley's murder on front page, which I won't tweet here. Their editor should be ashamed.— Jack Moore (@JFXM) August 20, 2014
What the hell is wrong with the people @nypost and the Daily News? Putting those screenshots on the front page was absolutely disrespectful.— Anne Kearney (@AnneKearney00) August 20, 2014
Don't recommend you look at @nypost. Today's front page is grotesque & could have been designed by ISIS themselves. Idiots.— Alex von Tunzelmann (@alexvtunzelmann) August 20, 2014
The .@nypost are using an image of James Foley's murder on their front page to sell copies. Utterly shameful. Don't click.— Steve Rose (@steveplrose)August 20, 2014
There's something very wrong with the editorial staff at the @nypost who went with that front page.— Kimberley Ramplin (@Kimbo_Ramplin) August 20, 2014
