Long-Running Reality TV Series 'Cops' Canceled
The long-running reality TV series Cops, which follows police officers on chases, drug busts, and dangerous missions, has been canceled.
After airing for more than 30 years, the TV series has been put to a stop following the anti-police movement of the leftist protesters and rioters. Since the death of Minneapolis man George Floyd under police custody on Memorial Day, the country has been in a state of chaos and attack due to the uncontrollable mobs of rioters. The protests seem to be getting further and further away from their initial goal to serve justice to Floyd and other members of the black community who suffered from abusive police officers. Now, the riots have turned into a country-wide movement pushing for the leftist agenda. First, they called for the defunding of the police, then they wreaked havoc on historical sites, and then they’re also targeting Confederate flags, statues, and monuments.
Paramount Network has put the Cops on hiatus last week but has decided not to bring back the show to show solidarity with the BLM protests and anti-police sentiments.
Cops first aired in 1989 on Fox and became a big hit. After 25 seasons, it got canceled in 2013. Paramount Network got the rights to the show and revived it for seven more seasons.
The future of cop-related TV series and movies is uncertain, as more people from the left and even from Hollywood are calling to cancel all shows that revolve around police and crimes. Hollywood elites have also contributed to the protests and have shown support in the call to defund the police, even signing an open letter. Celebrities who signed the letter include John Legend and his wife, Chrissy Teigen, Natalie Portman, Lizzo, Taraji P. Henson, The Weeknd, Common, America Ferrera, and Jane Fonda.
The canceling of Cops is just the beginning of leftists pushing for their own agendas. On Tuesday, they won in calling for the takedown of iconic American classic Gone With the Wind. HBO Max has banned the movie from its platform and has promised to bring it back up, but with a more “correct” historical context.
