On July 24, 2000, The San Diego Union-Tribune published an article entitled "A Depiction that Angered Hindus." The illustration of the "six-armed god with the blue skin that was on the cover of the July 16 Business section [of the newspaper] was highly offensive to some Hindu readers who said it was disrespectful and poked fun at their religion."
