Steven Maeda also tweeted a comparison of the series’ villain, St. Charlos, to former US President Donald Trump. In it, he remarked, “To those who think One Piece posts shouldn’t be political or anti-fascist, here’s St. Charlos before and after!”. Those unfamiliar with St.Charlos, he is one of the Globe Nobles, also known as the Celestial Dragons, who ruled over the whole world and were regarded above the law. Charlos is shown as being especially vicious and cruel for a World Noble. This comparison, however, brought even more backlash to Maeda to the latter.
