Cartoon Network writer sends odd tweet about baby ending with #plannedparenthood
A Cartoon Network writer has sent out an odd tweet using the hashtag #plannedparenthood.
Kelsey Abbott, whose Twitter page says she writes for Uncle Grandpa on Cartoon Network, tweeted this, “If I ever accidentally have a baby, I’m gonna dress it in a dog costume so hopefully my dog will raise it. #plannedparenthood”
According to the Cartoon Network, Uncle Grandpa is everyone on Earth’s magical uncle AND grandpa, who travels around helping people and changing their lives forever.
The show is obviously not intended for the very young and is rated PG.
Common Sense Media describes Uncle Grandpa this way:
Parents need to know that although Uncle Grandpa is a cartoon, it isn’t appropriate for very young kids. Body-related gross-out humor is the main offender, as issues like obesity, farting (including a tiger who passes a rainbow trail from his rear end that doubles as a weapon), and the removal and ingestion of one’s own body parts are revisited ad nauseam. There’s no semblance of reality to the meandering, fantasy-based plots, and supporting characters are often rude to each other. Despite Uncle Grandpa’s craziness, he often proves himself helpful in a roundabout way. Violence is limited to physical exchanges with punching and kicking, as well as the occasional laser gun showdown or stray explosion.
From the looks of her twitter page, Abbott is obviously a comedian.
Although Abbott’s tweet is bizarre – she does not appear to have other public words of support for abortion giant Planned Parenthood.
Still, it is surprising that she would even put the term planned parenthood in a tweet given the potential outrage people might have in discovering that a Cartoon Network writer tweeted it.
Having said that, if you are writing for the Cartoon Network, it might be best not to tweet a joke about how you would let your dog raise a baby you “accidentally” had; a suggestion that could lead others to believe that you don’t like kids.
