“The creators of Quebec-based humorous video website Têtes à claques are being criticized over a comedy skit some organizations are calling racist.
“The video The Cannibal, featuring bobblehead puppets and computer animation, shows two white people in a pot of boiling water while a black “cannibal” prepares to eat them.
“Québec pluriel, a group that promotes diversity, says the clip is derogatory toward black people.
“The group has called on the creators of the site to take it down and said it will take the issue to the Quebec Human Rights Tribunal.”
