Chase, the lovable and adorable police puppy in the children’s show “Paw Patrol” has become the latest victim of the ongoing Black Lives Matter protest. Finally, after a multi-day assault against the character, the show has put a muzzle on Chase.
“In solidarity of #amplifymelanatedvoices we will be muting our content until June 7th to give access for Black voices to be heard so we can continue to listen and further our learning. #amplifyblackvoices,” the show said.
“Perhaps naming your main character police dog “chase” is a bit tone deaf to the suffering of people who have actually been on the receiving end of dogs used as weapons by the police. My 3 year old calls his stuffed Chase Jase,” one fan said.
“You’ve already brainwashed a bunch of kids into thinking law enforcement is a noble and just profession. better to scrap production forever if you want to make lasting change,” said another.
“It’s time to put Chase down,” said another.
