WOKE Culture Forces Cancellation of Thirty-Season Television Show!

Perhaps it’s the acceleration caused by social media’s lubrication of the American culture, but it sure does seem like the pendulum swings between “woke” and “good old days” are growing more violent.

We live in a time where everyone adores the music and fashion of the 70’s and/or the 90’s, but can’t stand just how unwittingly offensive everything about those decades were.

We are evolving, sure, and there will be some growing pains along the way.  There will be some cultural casualties, such as we’re seeing this week.

Cops — the long-running reality series following police officers on high-speed chases, drug busts, and other dangerous missions — has been cancelled after a more than 30-year run as anti-police sentiment continues to sweep through Hollywood following last month’s death of George Floyd while in Minneapolis police custody.

The Paramount Network has decided not to bring Cops back after it put the show on hiatus last week in the midst of #BlackLivesMatter protests and growing demands to defund police departments around the country.

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

The ViacomCBS-owned cable channel has publicly supported the #BlackLivesMatter movement, saying in a recent tweet that “these racist and brutal attacks must end.”

The news comes just hours after Hollywood classic Gone With The Wind was pulling from its streaming platform over concerns for its portrayal of certain characters.
