This petition had 8,992 supporters


Violence and homophobia are serious issues that affect everyone, plague our society, and they should not be tolerated coming from University of Arizona supported public media.

 

Script of The Cartoon:

Father: Ya know son...
If you ever tell me you're gay...
I will shoot you with my shotgun, roll you up in a carpet and throw you off of a bridge...

Son: Well I guess that's what you call a "Fruit Roll Up!"

Father and Son: Ahh Ha ha ha Ha ha... bwah Ha Ha ha Ha ha haa!!

Condoning violence and homophobia by allowing this to cartoon to run is reprehensible and cannot be tolerated as acceptable with a simple apology or explanation.
