As the Black Lives Matter protests continue, more and more scrutiny is being put on the media we consume – more specifically, television.

The latest show to come under fire is Law & Order, and let’s just say, reactions have been strong. Keep scrolling to take a look for yourself…

And the latest to be scrutinized is Law & Order.  But let’s start from the beginning…

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.

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

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

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

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

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

And now, people are calling several TV shows into question due to their portrayal of police officers.

First off we had Cops

Paramount Network made the decision to cancel the show, which was heading into its 33rd season last week.

Cops is not on the Paramount Network and we don’t have any current or future plans for it to return,” a network spokesperson said.

The cancelation of Cops was only the beginning…

Popular children’s cartoon, Paw Patrol, also came under fire last week.

Nickelodeon’s Paw Patrol is a very popular show…

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.

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

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

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

Who’d have thought an animated puppy would make an adult uncomfortable? However, as of now, it doesn’t look like the future of the show is hanging in the balance, and the team is yet to respond to the online backlash.

The latest show to land itself in hot water is no other than Law & Order.

Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and the Dukes of Hazzard, are 2 hugely popular TV shows, and the latest to be drawn into controversy amid police brutality protests.

Why? Because of Olivia Benson’s “quintessential Good Cop character.”

She claimed Benson is “the embodiment of all of the qualities we wish law enforcement figures would have: she’s tough but fair, vulnerable yet steely-eyed, displaying constant compassion for survivors and providing no quarter to abusers.”

“She always fights for and believes victims, a marked contrast to real-life law enforcement officials, whose record on convicting sexual offenders is abysmal.”

“Not fundamentally, because nobody wants Olivia Benson to change. We’re probably not going to see her making an effort to hire more police officers of color. We’re probably not going to see George Floyd incorporated into plotlines in anything but a cursory, ripped-from-the-headlines way.”

People took to Twitter to express their anger.

It seems fans want this show to be left alone.

Reactions were strong, to say the least.

But that the character paved the way for other women to speak out. What do you think? Do you believe the show should be canceled?
