Because it's so offensive to portray a Mexican mouse that is super fast and is always saving other mice by outsmarting his foes while demonstrating bravery and heroism... 😒
Quite on the contrary... Speedy Gonzales and Jerry was drawn to help motivate the minorities, so Mexicans should be really honored he exists.
You have to think of it as a spoof remember it's children's comedy. With stereotypes they can easily identify differences and characters.
Pepe Le Pew also comes to mind.
I watched and watch Looney Tunes. Speedy to me was never a racist cartoon to me. No. I am Puerto Rican.
I have never thought that, because I’m not some hyper sensitive twat.
No and I really don’t care
Racism is in the minds of the corrupt.
I never really cared much to think about it lol
That was completely racist
