[75], After the attacks, the phrase Je suis Charlie, French for "I am Charlie", was adopted by supporters of Charlie Hebdo. He noted: "People sang La Marseillaise. and dismembered body parts reply "here". A spokesman for Vladimir Putin called the artwork "sacrilege", and members of the State Duma called for the magazine to be banned as extremist literature and demanded an apology from France. Charlie Hebdo, which has long made its name in eviscerating all comers — showing no fear or favour — has reprinted a series of cartoons for which it is particularly known: depicting and satirising Islam’s Mohammed.The cartoons — which are prohibited in Islam as haram — were cited by the Muslim gunmen who attacked the offices of the newspaper in 2015, killing 12. [148] Granting the prize to Charlie Hebdo sparked vast controversy among writers[149] and 175 prominent authors boycotted the event due to "cultural intolerance" of the magazine.

Daniel Schneidermann argues that the 2015 attack raised the profile of the paper internationally with non-Francophone audiences, meaning that only parts of the paper are selectively translated into English, making it easy to misrepresent the editorial stance of the publication and the purpose of provocative work. "[47] The US White House said "a French magazine published cartoons featuring a figure resembling the Prophet Muhammad, and obviously, we have questions about the judgment of publishing something like this. Riss parodied anti-immigrant attitudes by featuring a cartoon with a caricature of Jesus walking on water next to a drowning Muslim boy, with the caption "this is how we know Europe is Christian".

[117], On 1 September 2020, Charlie Hebdo announced that it will republish caricatures depicting Muhammad that sparked violent protests, ahead of a trial of suspected perpetrators of the mass shooting in January 2015 scheduled the following day. Stridently non-conformist in tone, the publication has been described as anti-racist,[6] sceptical,[7] secular, and within the tradition of left-wing radicalism,[8][9] publishing articles about the far-right (especially the French nationalist National Front party),[10] religion (Catholicism, Islam, and Judaism), politics and culture. Charlie Hebdo has published cartoons some consider racist, though the staff and a left-wing readership have always claimed the magazine satirizes racists through mocking and exaggerating right-wing talking points and depicting mock party logos (such as Front National);. The lawsuit was limited to three specific cartoons, including one depicting Muhammad carrying a bomb in his turban. [69] On Wednesday itself it was announced that with a huge demand in France, the print run would be raised from three to five million copies. The cartoonist said he would rather "cut his own balls off," and was promptly fired.

The tensions were, in turn, caused by the beheading of schoolteacher Samuel Paty in France after he showed caricatures of the prophet Muhammad, which were published by Charlie Hebdo, to his students as part of a lesson on free speech. The January 2015 attack on Charlie Hebdo and a Jewish supermarket left 17 people dead. Charlie Hebdo verdict: Closure fovictimes of January 2015 attacks?

[81], A series of rallies took place in cities across France on 10–11 January 2015 to honour the victims of the Charlie Hebdo shooting, and also to voice support for freedom of speech.
