Some people are calling online for Nickelodeon to cancel Paw Patrol, and take the show off the airwaves. Or if not that, they want the show’s main police dog character Chase to be removed.
This comes after Paramount’s Cops and A&E’s Live PD were canceled on Monday.
The call came as the animated show tweeted, “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 animated children’s show features a squad of 6 dogs with a set of skills related to emergency services, and a boy named Ryder who all work to protect their city of Adventure Bay.
Shortly after the show’s tweet, commenters started to weigh in asking for Paw Patrol to be canceled.
In one tweet, a user posted a photoshopped picture that read, “All Dogs go to Heaven, except for those class traitors in the Paw Patrol.”

In another, the call came to “Euthanize the police dog.”

Others in the comments also voiced their support for the show, saying Paw Patrol is exactly the type of positive influence children need.
“Please don’t listen to them!” one user wrote. “Chase is a GOOD dog and only shows the kids the RIGHT way to be towards others. Paw Patrol is my boys’ favorite cartoon. My one son loves Marshall & Chase the most. My other son loves Zuma. It’s a wonderful cartoon!!”

Even Rapper and actor Ice Cube weighed in saying that his grandkids also love Paw Patrol.
“My grand baby loves Paw Patrol, this s*** is going too far.”
Currently, Nickelodeon and Paw Patrol have not made a statement.
