Since last week, Barcelona have been experiencing violent riots, following the arrest of rapper Pablo Hasél. The artist was sentenced to nine months in prison in 2018, for "apology for terrorism, insults and slanders against the crown" following publications on social networks and certain lyrics of his songs against the government.

Pepe Le Pew will not appear in the Space Jam sequel set for release in July. The cartoon skunk starred in the original Warner Bros. film back in 1996. 'This was such a big deal for Greice to be in this movie. Even though Pepe is a cartoon character, if anyone was going to slap a sexual harasser like him, Greice wished it would be her,' the rep told Dateline. 'Now the scene is cut, and she doesn’t have that power to influence the world through younger generations who’ll be watching Space Jam 2 to let younger girls and younger boys know that Pepe ’s behavior is unacceptable,' the spokesperson said.

He begins kissing her arm, which she pulls back, then slamming Pepe into the chair next to hers.

The Times column aside, there has been no concerted attempt to “cancel” Mr. Le Pew , and you can still watch his shorts on HBO Max and the cartoon streamer Boomerang. And, of course, you can see him Space Jam .

Pepé Le Pew will not be featured in Space Jam 2, a source confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter.

The controversial Looney Tunes skunk cartoon character was scrubbed from the Lebron James starrer more than a year ago.

News of the character’s absence from the Warner Bros. film broke Sunday evening, days after a New York Times opinion piece called out the character, among other problematic cartoon characters, in the wake of Dr. Seuss Enterprises announcing it would stop publishing six books because of racist and insensitive imagery.

In the Times opinion piece, Charles M. Blow said Pepé Le Pew “normalized rape culture.”

The character was featured in Space Jam, which starred NBA living legend Michael Jordan. It is unclear if the cartoon character will be retired completely.

Space Jam 2 is due out July 16, 2021.
