The season premiere of “Park and Recreation,” the show from NBC’s “The Office,” is the subject of controversy.
The ad that features a character called “Pizza Boy” has become an online phenomenon.
“Pizzagate” conspiracy theorists are pushing for the network to drop the ad.
The episode premiered on Saturday night and was a hit.
But, the ad has now caused an uproar among some online commenters.
Some have questioned the validity of the ad and called it racist.
The “PokePedia” podcast host and the writer behind the meme shared their opinions on the episode on Facebook.
“The reason this ad is controversial is because it was the first episode of a season in which the character is portrayed as a racist caricature,” he wrote.
“I think it’s really funny that a show where a white person is played by a black man is being compared to a movie about a white character who is played as a racial caricature.”
“The Pizzagate controversy is a good example of the sort of things that can happen when you put a racist message in an ad,” said the author, who goes by the Twitter handle @sneaky_lunatic.
“This was a series that was about the culture wars, about the right and wrong of certain things, and that the Pizzagates were being portrayed as the most extreme example of those.
So the fact that this was the beginning of a series about a Pizzapocalypse has a very different feel from the idea of a Pawnee or a New York.
It’s just really strange.”
On Reddit, the “pizza boy” meme has become a topic of discussion.
“There’s nothing funny about it, and it’s definitely not true,” said Redditor joshtjr.
“But it’s just another example of why we should not take these things too seriously.
It really does feel like the ‘Pokeipedia’ meme, and the way that people have taken it and used it, feels like they’re doing this on purpose.”
But it also highlights the fact [that] there are a lot of white people out there who are racist.”””
The meme is about how this is a reflection of a white culture and a white male.
But it also highlights the fact [that] there are a lot of white people out there who are racist.””
It’s definitely funny,” said another Reddit user, @hannah_kristin.
“The guy’s white, but the way he dresses and the fact he’s racist, that’s really just not funny.
That’s a problem that needs to be solved.””
A racist meme?
What racist meme?” asked another commenter, @russiandoom_.
The Reddit user who asked to remain anonymous agreed.
This meme, or the way people have used it in the past, is definitely racist.”
But he also said he believes the ad could be a bit offensive.
“I think the show is meant to be funny and satirical and satirical,” he said.
“And that’s what it was.
But in that context, it could be offensive to some people.
It could be racist.”
