Dutch Newspaper Runs ‘Mexico Go Home’ Cartoon On Front Cover [PHOTO]

Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf ran a cartoon on the front cover of its newspaper today with Netherlands manager Louis Van Gaal wearing a sombrero that says “MexiGo Home,” as well as wearing a poncho and toting two guns.

The rest of the cartoon features Dutch stars such as Robin van Persie and Arjen Robben running around as little mice.

Is this insulting or racist against Mexicans? Or is it all in good humor? Share your opinions in the comment section below.

The Netherlands play Mexico tomorrow at Noon ET/9am PT in the World Cup Round of 16 match, with the Dutch heavily favored to win.

This isn’t the first time where the Dutch newspaper has tried to troll its opponents. Here are the front covers of recent editions targeting Spain, Australia and Chile:
