First Pepé Le Pew, Now the Internet Wants to Cancel Miss Piggy

Published on March 10th, 2021 | Updated on March 10th, 2021 | By FanFest

The latest victim of cancel culture was the Looney Tunes’ love-drunk skunk Pepé Le Pew, who will not be making an appearance in the upcoming Space Jam: A New Legacy.  A New York Times columnist blasted the character recently for glorifying ‘rape culture’ and now, as a result, Le Pew has been dropped from Space Jam: A New Legacy. And now, in true internet form, they have set their targets on none other than Miss Piggy.

The Hollywood Reporter wrote that Le Pew “is not featured in any current Warner Bros. TV projects and there are no current plans for the controversial cartoon skunk to return.” Sure, things don’t always stand the test of time and what was written or how a character was previously portrayed may not be appropriate.  But like all things, couldn’t they have just modified the character slightly and reintroduced him? It’s a cartoon character for goodness sake!

Now that Le Pew has been taken down, the internet is after The Muppet’s Miss Piggy.

Twitter users are arguing that Miss Piggy is mean, disrespectful, and sometimes violent with Kermit.  They argue that Miss Piggy should be held accountable for her actions and behavior. They want to cancel Miss Piggy.  Check out some of the reactions below! Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
