Now that Pepe has been outed as a racist, many other cartoon characters are speaking out. Pepe has been depicted wearing a Hitler-like moustache, wearing a yarmulke or a KKK hood along with racist messages against Jews and others on Twitter.
Rumor has it that Kermit the Frog recently said, “It isn’t easy being green but WTF, that doesn’t give anyone the right to attack others.” Kermit feels that Pepe doesn’t speak for the rest of the frog kingdom or even reptiles. The Ninja Turtles may have been quick to point out that they aren’t frogs and have made a career out of fighting evil. Apparently, they don’t agree with Pepe’ point of view and they are looking for him. Daffy Duck said, “You’re dethpicable.” Another rumor has it that Bugs Bunny was quoted as saying. “What’s up Frog? When you go around feeling a little Goofy, that makes you a pervert.” When asked about Pepe, Popeye the Sailor Man said, “That’s all I can stands ‘cus I can’t stands no more.”
Other character coming out against Pepe may include Homer Simpson and Bart Simpson, Spongebob Squarepants, Scooby Doo, Mickey Mouse, and Stewie Griffin and Peter Griffin. Okay, I made that up but it could happen. Cartoons are supposed to be apolitical.
Stay ‘tooned,’ more to come.
