But firstly, let's start from the beginning...

On May 25th, George Floyd was arrested and forced to the ground...

Where former police officer, Derek Chauvin, proceeded to kneel on his neck, while 3 other officers knelt on his back until he died. Passers-by filmed the horrifying event and the footage very quickly went viral on social media.

This kind of police brutality has been happening for centuries now...

But George's death has sparked an outrage like never before.

Thousands upon thousands of people have been taking to the streets in protest...

And they are all marching for one thing: For the blatant racism and injustice in this country to be brought to an end.

Police officers have been forced to resort to violence in order to maintain the riots...

And this has only fueled the nation's anger further.

Tensions surrounding our police force are continuing to escalate.

Police racism has been casually happening across our country for centuries, and it needs to end now.

It's an unbelievably difficult time...

And it's hard to distinguish the good police officers from the bad.

It seems that the police will never be viewed in the same way again...

And now, people are calling for a children's TV show to be canceled due to its supposed message about "police brutality."

Nickelodeon's Paw Patrol is a very popular show...

via: IMDB

It follows a boy named Ryder and a team of 6 playful rescue dogs who use their individual talents to protect the seaside town of Adventure Bay - including a police officer, a firefighter, and a construction worker.

It all started with this tweet...

Paw Patrol issued a statement to their followers explaining how they will be temporarily muting their content to mark the Black Lives Matter movement.

Even though many praised the production for making this decision...

So many Twitter users began slamming the show for "encouraging kids into thinking law enforcement is a noble profession."

Even the characters' names were criticized...

Apparently, the name "Chase" represents people who have been attacked by police dogs in a very tone-deaf way. Okay then...

Many viewers came forward and expressed how Chase's character made them "uncomfortable."

Who'd have thought an animated puppy would make an adult uncomfortable?

And some users went even further...

Seriously?

Accusations were made against the main character...

Because there was an episode where he beat peaceful protestors... apparently?

Of course, people began making jokes...

We are on the internet after all!

But thankfully, there were many people out there defending Paw Patrol.

So many children around the world love the cartoon and parents believe that the show isn't delivering a negative message at all.

Several Twitter users called for people to stop making everything so political...

Why can't we just let children be children?

We fully understand the problem with police brutality...

But not all police officers practice this form of violence and there are so many members of law enforcement who are out there to try and make a difference.

And as this Twitter user pointed out...

Chase is merely a representation of how a police officer should be - which is something amazing for children to look up to and aspire to be.

All in all...

People are starting debates over a cartoon dog. There are seriously more important things going on in the world right now.

The people at Paw Patrol are yet to respond to these ridiculous demands...

But we highly doubt they'll be canceling their popular show any time soon. Keep scrolling to read about the sheriff who put down his baton and joined the protestors...
