People Are Now Asking To Ban 'Paw Patrol' Cartoon Over Its Depiction Of Police

Twitter users even demanded to 'euthanize the police dog' and 'Defund the paw patrol'.

With everything going around us, no one expected the anti-police protestors to come after Paw Patrol. A lot of people are familiar with the show which is a children’s cartoon about a squad of canine helpers.




It is nothing but a pretense where the creators of the show keep household pets in a number of cool trucks. The Paw Patrol consists of Marshall, a firefighting Dalmatian; Rubble, a bulldog construction worker; and Chase, a German shepherd who is a police officer.



In the Paw Patrol universe, Chase is a good boy who is known for saying phrases like, "Chase is on the case!” and “All in a police pup’s day!" while he goes around doing his daily job. But recently, when the show’s official Twitter account put out a call for Black voices to be heard,” it didn't take long for people to come after Chase.







Twitteratis demanded to 'Euthanize the police dog' and Defund the paw patrol'. Others also came up with phrases like All dogs go to heaven, except the class traitors in the Paw Patrol', reported Daily Mail



As the protests against police brutality and racist police violence enter into its third week, it looks like charges are piling up against fictional cops too, and even big-hearted cartoon police dogs are not being spared.




In an effort to publicize police brutality, people are also trying to destroy the 'good-cop' archetype. While Paw Patrol is a harmless show, but the entire movement is based on the idea that cops do plenty of harm.



 Since we all have a lot of free time in hand, we are investing more and more of our time watching the content offered by our television networks. This has resulted in people noticing how problematic some shows or certain scenes in a show are. 



Recently, Tom Scharpling, an executive producer of “Monk,” criticized his own show on Twitter writing, "If you — as I have — worked on a TV show or movie in which police are portrayed as lovable goofballs, you have contributed to the larger acceptance that cops are implicitly the good guys.” As a result of the protests, Lego has stopped their marketing on its “LEGO City Police Station” and “Police Highway Arrest” sets. A&E has pulled its reality show “Live PD” from the schedule and the television series Cops, which always shows suspects in a bad light, was canceled after 32 seasons. 



A&E released a statement saying, "This is a critical time in our nation’s history and we have made the decision to cease production on Live PD. Going forward, we will determine if there is a clear pathway to tell the stories of both the community and the police officers whose role it is to serve them. And with that, we will be meeting with community and civil rights leaders as well as police departments."
