Adult Swim Deletes Three Cartoon Episodes Over ‘Cultural Sensitivities’

The “correcting” of entertainment continues as Adult Swim producers have deleted episodes from three of its shows, preventing the offending episodes from being listed on HBO Max.

Episodes of Aqua Teen Hunger Force, The Boondocks, and The Shivering Truth have been deleted from the full series offerings at the streaming service in the face of continued pressure from Black Lives Matter activists to obliterate what they claim is offensive entertainment.

The canceled episode for Aqua Teen Hunger Force, for instance, is the 2009 show entitled, “Shake Like Me,” in which a milk shake turns into a stereotypical black caricature after being bitten by a “radioactive black man,” Mediaite reports.

The second episode disappeared by Adult Swim is from the series The Boondocks. Producers sent down the memory hole the 2010 episode, “The Story of Jimmy Rebel.” The episode features the story of a racist country singer.

The third and final episode is 2018’s “The Ogled Inklings,” from the series, The Shivering Truth. In this episode, a woman gives birth to a “dirty pig” that ends up being a human police officer as opposed to an actual porcine character.

“When Adult Swim transitions series to a new platform, we determine what episodes are selected through creative and cultural filters and our standards and practices policies,” a network representative tried to explain. “Oftentimes, these decisions are made in collaboration with the show’s creators.”

Adult Swim producers now join series including South Park, The Office, 30 Rock, Scrubs, and Community in ditching episodes that activists deemed problematic. Most of those episodes, though, contained instances of blackface.

Recently, HBO Max also targeted films such as Gone with the Wind and Blazing Saddles and slapped them with warning notices before their opening acts to warn audiences that the movies contain “offensive” material.
