After millions of people were angered following the death of George Floyd, some social media users asked the children’s show “PAW Patrol” to reevaluate the message they show to kids about cops.

While protests regarding police brutality continue to take place in America, “PAW Patrol” gives high regard to cops through their content.

Reports in the past years proved that white cops treat black men and women differently from white ones, while some go as far as taking the life of a person of color.

“PAW PATROL” FACES BACKLASH

On June 2, a week after Floyd’s death and at the height of the unrest, the show announced: “In solidarity of #amplifymelanted voices we will be muting our content until June 7th to give access for Black voices to be heard.”

The post attracted mixed reactions, including one that said the show “brainwashed a bunch of kids into thinking law enforcement is a noble and just profession.”

While some agreed and called for the cancellation of the children’s cartoon, others defended the famous series.

DEFENDING “PAW PATROL”

“PAW Patrol” simply taught kids how to be kind and help others, one person said. Among those who also had a few words to say is President Donald Trump’s son, Eric Trump. He said:

“Now the left wants to cancel ‘Paw Patrol.’ These people are truly insane.”

The pouring amount of reactions on social media were heightened after a piece from The New York Times highlighted the criticisms made for the animated series.

Amanda Hess, the Times critic who wrote the article, expressed her frustration towards the children’s show, while other media critics took to Twitter their sentiments.

“I’m sorry, I refuse to believe this is the New York Times, and not The Onion,” Four Watch’s Steve Krakauer tweeted.

While cops supposedly are noble occupations, protecting and serving the people, they are feared by many among black men and women.

Famous host Nick Cannon revealed that his nine-year-old kids are well-aware of the police brutality and discrimination against people of color.

His children, Monroe and Moroccan, “fear the police,” despite the television personality teaching them to be fearless.

Reports in the past years proved that white cops treat black men and women differently from white ones, while some go as far as taking the life of a person of color.
