Student Newspaper Apologizes For "Crappy Tipping Jews" Cartoon

A comic published in the UA student newspaper on Tuesday has been heavily criticized as anti-Semitic and editors are responding with an apology to run in today's edition.

"I've gotten tons of feedback on it," said Allison Hornick, editor in chief of the Arizona Daily Wildcat. "Basically they think it's anti-Semitic and that we shouldn't have run it."
