Samsung Removes Cartoons Depicting Fund Founder As Ruthless "Vulture"

A Samsung company removed cartoons attacking a U.S. hedge fund's founder as a ravenous, big-beaked vulture after Jewish organizations protested similar smears in South Korea's media.
The fund, Elliott, is opposing a takeover deal between Samsung companies that critics say will ensure Samsung's founding family retains outsized influence over the conglomerate.
One of the companies, Samsung C&T, posted cartoons online that depicted Elliott's founder Paul Singer as a vulture-like figure.
Last week, Jewish organizations asked Samsung and South Korea's government to denounce anti-Semitic stereotypes in local media.
