Paramount Cancels Cops and Live PD
Cops has been on the air through four decades but could not survive the latest in cancel culture.
“‘Cops’ is not on the Paramount Network and we don’t have any current or future plans for it to return,” a Paramount Network spokesperson said in a statement.
The original decision to hold “Cops” was after nationwide protests against police brutality following the killing of George Floyd by Minnesota police officer Derek Chauvin.
LIVE PD is currently involved in controversy as many are claiming they withheld footage of an unarmed black man screaming “I cant breath”. One Twitter user wrote:
This after calls for defunding the police are echoed by protesters throughout the United States.
