An illustration by the cartoonist Nik about the attempted assassination of Cristina Kirchner generated the anger of the vice president’s lawyer, Gregorio Dalbón, who said on Twitter that he would file a lawsuit against her. This message generated the rejection of Nik himself and all kinds of comments for and against.
In the vignette, President Alberto Fernández can be seen as if he were a pet of former President Cristina Kirchner.
The repercussions continued on Monday and Tuesday and Nik accused Dalbón of wanting to “restrict freedom of expression” through another illustration that he published on his networks.
“First, they mess with your children, now they mess with your work, with the freedom to express an opinion. They go for more every time,” the cartoonist completed, in relation to a previous exchange with the Minister of Security, Aníbal Fernández.
Faced with this new manifestation of rejection, the journalist Diego Brancatelli joined the controversy and crossed Nik with a harsh message.
“Nik. Locate yourself. It is the only thing that is asked of you. I continued to profit from the Garfield Argento, your dirty drawings and your lousy ‘humor’. But do not militate through your drawings and much less disrespect the President and the Vice. DO YOU UNDERSTAND? Or do I make you a little drawing?”, the communicator wrote on his Twitter account.
Far from letting the waters calm down and any gesture of apology, the cartoonist replied to Brancatelli’s message: “Incredible, a journalist against freedom of expression. That’s how Nazism and fascism began.”
Vice President Cristina Kirchner’s lawyer will denounce Nik, the creator of Gaturro, for a joke that appeals to the assassination attempt that occurred at the beginning of September against the vice president.
This is not the first time the cartoonist is involved in a controversy for his workbut already has several complaints of plagiarism.
In this case, Nik published a joke in La Nación in which he makes fun of Alberto Fernández and Cristina Kirchner and refers to the attack suffered by the former president.
In the vignette you can read:
“Two lunatics with an impossible, ridiculous, implausible plan… a man and a woman who put all of Argentina in danger”, in the mouth of a uniformed man.
Then, a journalist asks him: “The Band of Copitos?”. But the uniformed man replies: “No” and in the background there is a caricature of Néstor and Cristina Kirchner.

The joke was originally published in the newspaper, but it was quickly reproduced on social networks by users until it went viral, generating negative and positive reactions.
Upon learning of the joke published by Nik, Gregorio Dalbón, Cristina Kirchner’s lawyer, communicated via Twitter that he plans to start a joke against the comedian.
“This is not a joke. For this reason, in my own name, in the absence of a ‘prosecutor’, I will initiate the corresponding complaint,” said the lawyer. And he added: “Enough gratuitously disrespecting President Alberto Fernández and Cristina Kirchner.” “I hope the human rights organizations will join us,” he concluded.
For his part, the cartoonist defended himself and assured that the Government of Alberto Fernández and Cristina Kirchenr want censor it.
“Gregorio Dalbón, Cristina’s lawyer, wants to take me to court for this joke. I hope I do it. It would be historic and an unprecedented global scandal. Never in modern history has freedom of expression been punished. This is how Dalbón and Cristina want us, gagged “he wrote on his nikgaturro account.
And in another tweet he added: “Now they want restrict freedom of expression. FIRST, they mess with your CHILDREN, now they mess with your work, with the freedom to express an opinion. Every time they GO FOR MORE”.

They impoverished us, they did NOT take care of us in the Pandemic… Now they also want to take away our freedom of opinion? “, He sentenced.
