They ought to put the scene back in. Because it was all about Pepe getting lectured on consent in the first place, which would likely piss them off even more.

WTF?! The Muppet Show was NEVER a children's show - it was a prime time series.

Foe news is so full of shit.
This makes me think of something I saw about the Pepe Le Pew thing. I forget the exact quote but it was something like "Let's cancel Pep Le Pew, then let my kid go kill a hooker because he doesn't want to pay her in Grand Theft Auto".

Because you know, GTA is rated M, and you letting you kid play that game is entirely on you, the parent. It's literally not intended for an underage audience in any way.

More than 1.2 million copies of stories by the late children’s author sold in the first week of March — more than quadruple from the week before — following the news that his estate was pulling six books because of racial and ethnic stereotyping. For days virtually every book in the top 20 on Amazon’s bestseller list was by Dr. Seuss.

According to NPD BookScan, which tracks around 85% of retail sales, the top sellers weren’t even the books being withdrawn. “The Cat in the Hat” sold more than 100,000 copies, compared to just 17,000 in the previous week. “Green Eggs and Ham” topped 90,000 copies, and “One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish” sold around 88,000.
A win ripped out of dumb. I'll take it.

...and with each Dr. Seuss book you get a free pack of toilet paper and a clip of .556. Because, well, GOP hoarding habits.

Also , signing someone else's book only makes sense if you're in it.
The bullet points in this article.


Honestly, do they really think that "lefties are losing their minds" about each asinine stunt or tweet? 🙄

RIGHT. conservatives are so easily shattered by criticism they think it's "censorship."
