Judging by some of the cancel culture stories that have come to light following protests, rioting and looting in the wake of the death of George Floyd, one might think that there’s a mental health epidemic going on around the world. I’m not discounting mental health issues, but when you begin going after benign children’s cartoons for being “offensive,” you might be the problem.
Nickelodeon children’s cartoon “Paw Patrol” has received backlash after trying to make a nice gesture to the black community following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis on May 25.
Here’s the tweet:
Some in the cancerous “Twitterverse” responded by calling for the removal of a German Shepherd police dog on the show, named Chase. Of course, respondents didn’t call for the fictional police dog’s removal in the nicest of ways. They came like an angry mob who hadn’t been fed in days.
These are just some examples of the stupidity that is emblematic of the type of dialogue typically seen on Twitter:
I don’t know. I just don’t know anymore. I’d like to think that the outrage mob on Twitter represents a very small portion of our society, but good Lord these people are dumb.
It’s a cartoon…for children…that teaches them how to help others. Part of me wishes Chase was real so he could bite some sense into others, but he wouldn’t do that since his character is way more civilized than those who live merely to cancel others.
Get a life, losers.
