Sky News Cuts Off Interview With Guest Who Shows Charlie Hebdo Cover On Air

YouTube

While many top news organizations worldwide have decided to show the new Charlie Hebdo cover released Wednesday, several outlets have chosen to refrain from displaying the image.

The latest cover, the first since the tragic attacks on the paper's office that left 12 dead, features the Prophet Muhammad holding a sign with the phrase "Je Suis Charlie" beside the words "All Is Forgiven." Millions of copies sold worldwide, but some networks and publications argue that reprinting the images is offensive to their Muslim viewers, as many Muslims believe that depicting Muhammad is against their faith.

Watch what happened when former Charlie Hebdo contributor Caroline Fourest held up the new cover on Sky News -- a network that has chosen not to show the image.
