The state of Alabama has been the talk of the town lately. Mainly due to its restrictive anti-abortion ban which set America aflame. Several celebrities and public officials have spoken out on the issue, which halted all including sexual assault victims from terminating a pregnancy upon the detection of a fetal heartbeat. The former also indicated that doctors who proceeded with abortions would be jailed for life. Indeed, the state has simply been losing their entire mind lately and a lot of folks are unhappy.
To further add to their savagery, the Alabama Public Television has recently pulled the plug on the airing of an Arthur episode. The cartoon take would have included the wedding of rodent character Mr. Ratburn, who was set to marry another man. Clearly, the gay marriage idea was not favored by the state of Alabama and so they quickly shut it all the way down. Based on reports by AL.com, the state’s public televisions stations refused to air the popular cartoon episode because it portrayed same-sex marriage.
“Parents have trusted Alabama Public Television for more than 50 years to provide children’s programs that entertain, educate and inspire. More importantly – although we strongly encourage parents to watch television with their children and talk about what they have learned afterwards – parents trust that their children can watch APT without their supervision. We also know that children who are younger than the ‘target’ audience for Arthur also watch the program,” shared the director of programming, Mike Mckenzie.
