The 'Mac' image, which also appears on the paper's website, references news that singer Tom Jones will undergo tests in a bid to discover whether he has black ancestry.
It depicts two white colonial-type explorers, one reading a newspaper with the headline "'Am I black?' asks Tom Jones", another approaching two black tribesmen with a test-tube, clutching a briefcase adorned with the words "DNA tests".
Tuesday's cartoon caption reads: "The DNA matches - now just one more test... can you sing Delilah?", a song by Jones that became the sixth best-selling British single in 1968.
Stanley McMurtry 'mac' drew this cartoon, & the Daily Mail published it today. In 2015.November 3, 2015
Twitter users piled in to rebuke the newspaper for publishing Tuesday's picture.
