Ice Cube Blasts 'Woke' Mob for Attacking Kids' Cartoon ‘Paw Patrol’
Rapper reacts to popular show becoming victim of 'cancel culture'
Rapper Ice Cube took aim at the leftist 'woke' mafia following attacks on the popular cartoon, Paw Patrol.
The long-running show came under fire last week because one of its characters is a police dog.
The show features puppies who work in professions like the police, construction, firefighting, medicine, who maintain order in their town.
But the woke mob blasted the show for portraying "good cops."
The character became a target of Black Lives Matter activists looking to get rid of anything police-related.
In particular, shows that characterize police in a positive light and now being shamed.
But Ice Cube expressed dismay with the targeting the cartoon.
“My grandbaby loves Paw Patrol, this sh*t is going too far,” the rapper tweeted on Thursday.

The hip hop legend was responding to tweet for a story reporting that the Nickelodeon cartoon had fallen victim to cancel culture.
Last week, Paw Patrol tweeted that they would join the movement of entities taking a back seat in order that black voices could be heard.
“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."

An op-ed in the New York Times that accused the police dog “good-cop archetype” of being a bad idea.
Author Amanda Hess wrote:
“As the protests against racist police violence enter their third week, the charges are mounting against fictional cops, too. Even big-hearted cartoon police dogs — or maybe especially big-hearted cartoon police dogs — are on notice.”
Hess claimed that cartoon puppies making the police look like 'good guys' is dangerous.
Even the satirical newspaper The Onion posted a headline in response to the outrage:
"‘Paw Patrol’ Writers Defend Episode Where German Shepherd Cop Shoots Unarmed Black Lab 17 Times In Back."
