Looney Tunes character Pepe Le Pew is the latest victim of the cancel culture mob.
Warner Bros. reportedly axed Pepe Le Pew from its “Space Jam” sequel featuring Lebron James.
In the deleted scene, Pepe Le Pew allegedly had a restraining order filed against him after he hit on a woman, according to a report by Deadline.
This comes as the New York Times columnist Charles M. Blow caused a national stink slamming the cartoon character portraying a French skunk for contributing to “rape culture” in America.
Blow doubled down of his “rape culture” criticism on Twitter.
“RW blogs are mad bc I said Pepe Le Pew added to rape culture. Let’s see. 1. He grabs/kisses a girl/stranger, repeatedly, w/o consent and against her will. 2. She struggles mightily to get away from him, but he won’t release her 3. He locks a door to prevent her from escaping.”
Blow added: “This helped teach boys that ‘no’ didn’t really mean no, that it was a part of ‘the game’, the starting line of a power struggle. It taught overcoming a woman’s strenuous, even physical objections, was normal, adorable, funny. They didn’t even give the woman the ability to SPEAK,” Blow wrote.
“To be honest, that sounds more like the behavior of Gov. Andrew Cuomo and President Biden than Pepe Le Pew,” nationally syndicated radio host Todd Starnes said.
“It is a cartoon animal. It’s not a human,” Todd Starnes said on the Todd Starnes Radio Show Monday.
Starnes responded to Blow on Twitter, writing: “Conservatives do not have you, @CharlesMBlow. They are just aghast at the vastness of your ignorance. #PepeLePew”
