**UPDATE** GLOBAL ROAD DECEIVED THE PUBLIC. THE OBJECTIONABLE SCENES REMAIN**** Read HERE
Late Sunday night when I wrote an article about Terina Maldonado’s review of the Show Dogs movie on Macaroni Kid, I never DREAMED that it would go viral and be part of a movement to get the Show Dogs movie pulled from theaters and edited. NEVER dreamed. I thought at best, it would educate a few thousand people about whether or not to take their kids to the film.
Well. Four days and 4.7 million page views later, my wildest dreams have come true: last night CNN reported that Global Road Entertainment will pull the Show Dogs movie from theaters and re-edit it to remove the scene where Max the dog is coached about having his private parts inspected, and the scene where the inspection occurs. These scenes, to reviewer Maldonado, seemed to echo a grooming scenario by a sexual predator, as Max was told he needed to “go to a zen place” and figure out a way to get through it if he wanted to win the dog show. (Side note, it reminded ME of statements by the sexual assault victims of USA Gymnastics doctor Larry Nassar, who have said over and over they thought his “treatment” was something they had to endure if they wanted to get over their injuries and win.)
