Pepe Le Pew Cancelled and Dropped from New Space Jam 2 Movie

The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Pepé 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. 

They further reported that the news comes one day after it was reported that Pepé Le Pew was scrubbed from the upcoming Space Jam 2. And while all that news falls days after a New York Times opinion piece in which the character was said to have “normalized rape culture,” the decision to both scrub him from the film and not have him return for TV projects was made more than a year ago. The Times’ piece ran in wake of Dr. Seuss Enterprises announcing it would stop publishing six books because of racist and insensitive imagery.
