While Pepé le Pew was deemed to have crossed the line, the makers of Space Jam: A New Legacy seem to have no problem including characters who actually committed rape on screen.
The Space Jam remake, whose trailer was released this weekend, features a myriad of characters from the past, from Scooby-Doo, to Mad Max, and everything in between. The question is, in today's day and age, why include the Droogs at all?
The Droogs featured in the now infamous scene from A Clockwork Orange depicts in graphic detail the group of men abusing a woman. This seems far worse than anything Pepé le Pew ever did to Penelope Pussycat, no?
These days outrage is selective, and while the Droogs have somehow been given the go-ahead, the cartoon skunk has been left on the sidelines.
