The PAW Patrol pups are facing their biggest challenge yet in the wake of the unrest in America — cancellation.
At least, that’s what many are calling for on social media due to the show’s positive portrayal of the police as many across the nation take to the streets in protest of racial injustice and police brutality.
The call for the show’s cancellation is trending on social media and is appearing in numerous Google searches on Thursday, according to Google Trends.
PAW Patrol is a Nickelodeon’s children’s show that features six rescue dogs in training, with each one “inspired by a real-world job like firefighter, police officer and construction worker,” according to the show’s website.
The group is lead by 10-year-old Ryder who helps guide the pups on each of their missions as they work to help those in need, the show’s website said.
The call for cancellation sparked after the show posted on its Twitter account earlier this week, claiming it would be muting its content beginning June 2 through June 7 to “give access for Black voices to be heard so we can continue to listen and further our learning."
Since the tweet, many social media users have come after Chase, a German Shepherd ‘pup hero’ that serves as a police and spy dog in the group.
