Robert: “Paw Patrol” NOT cancelled despite White House claims

Despite what the White House has said, Paw Patrol is not going anywhere.
“No need to worry. PAW Patrol is not canceled,” the show tweeted on Friday.
Fans of the show were alarmed after White House Press Secretary Kaleigh McEnany noted in a press briefing that the show had been canned over ongoing tensions between the public and police forces across the country. One of Paw Patrol‘s most popular characters is a police dog name Chase.

“We saw a few weeks ago that PAW Patrol, a cartoon show about cops, was canceled,” she said. “The show Cops was canceled. Live PD was canceled. Lego halted the sales of their Lego City police station.”
LEGO did not in fact stop its sales of the LEGO City police station, but paused promoting the toy block sets on social media, a spokesperson for the company told Tech Crunch in early June.
McEnany also mentioned that LEGO had stopped selling police sets and characters for similar reasons. A claim the company has since refuted,
“We have not removed any products from sale or stopped marketing any products,” LEGO said in a statement. “On Tuesday we paused sharing social media content on our channels. We informed our Affiliate Program members about this and suggested they do the same.”
