When White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany decried the supposed canceling of Nickelodeon’s popular kids show PAW Patrol on Friday, she "proved that the Trump administration is clueless when it comes to internet culture," says Alyse Stanley. Stanley points out there "was never any serious campaign to pull it off the air to begin with. It was all a meme sparked by the cancelation of several series that depict police violence, including Cops and Live PD (McEnany got that right at least) in the wake of international protests and calls for police reform after George Floyd’s death at the hands of Minneapolis police in May. After PAW Patrol, a children’s cartoon about animated pups performing public services, posted a milquetoast public statement that called for 'Black voices to be heard' on Twitter in June, dragging the show’s police dog character quickly became the internet’s new favorite hobby. (Look, months stuck in the fishbowl of quarantine have left some folks with a lot of free time, ok?)"
