I really don’t give a fuck about white children being afraid of Nickelodeon’s “I Can Breath” commercial. Black kids are being told they could get MURDERED for just being Black. Stop being a little bitch and tell Tommy why he’s watching it in the first place.
Let's be real Karen. You are not upset that #Nickelodeon scared your kid (far scarier shit on tv) you are upset your kid is now asking questions you are not equipped or comfortable answering. Imagine for a second the hard conversations black mothers have with their children.
To the folks like the person in the below screenshot, angry that Nickelodeon aired a powerful 8 minute and 46 second statement because it was “inappropriate” for children:
Tamir Rice was 12 years old when he was gunned down by the police while holding a toy gun.
Black children are dying and Nickelodeon has BLACK child actors they HAVE to say something. I’m sorry your privilege allows to to disconnect and ignore. Our black kids CANNOT do the same. Understand that point of view.
People griping at Nickelodeon for the "I Can't Breathe" spot. Claiming that it's "not the right platform" & that it is scaring their children
It should scare your children.
If they learn of injustice from a cable network instead of their parents then that's on the parents.
Hi, I'm a director at Nickelodeon, and I'll be doing portfolio reviews for aspiring POC board artists tomorrow. I know its not much, but I want to do what I can to open up opportunities. DM me a link to your work! #BlackLivesMatter
For #BlackOutTuesday, Nickelodeon social media will be on pause as we reflect on recent events. Our focus will be on building community, taking action, and sparking real change in the fight against racial injustice.
Nickelodeon blacked out their network in honor of #GeorgeFloyd for 8 minutes and people are really screaming at them for traumatizing their children. Black children are being shot and killed by police and YOUR children should know and be taught anti-racism. Also you’re racist
white people being enraged over a Nickelodeon commercial scaring their children is the perfect example of their privilege. while your kid is scared of a commercial black kids are scared of being murdered solely for their skin color . disgusting.
Nickelodeon played this for 8min and 46sec. Those of you saying this scared your children are wrong. There’s far scarier things on TV (e.g., the news). Your problem with this is the fact that your kids are now asking questions you don’t want/know to answer
Nickelodeon stopping broadcast to show nine minutes of the words 'I can't breathe' so the sound effect of laboured breathing.
People are complaining that it was unnerving, scary, uncomfortable. Thats the damn point.
Nickelodeon going off the air for 8 minutes is a sign that even a kids network is fucking done with this 💩 #GeorgeFloyd #JusticeForGeorgeFloyd #ICantBreathe
If you knew how to talk to your kids and teach them some real shit, Nickelodeon wouldn’t have to do it for you.
Increíble mensaje de Nickelodeon poniéndose fuera del aire por 8 minutos con 46 segundos. El tiempo que fue asfixiado George Floyd antes de morir. Mensaje directo y muy inteligente para las futuras generaciones. La solución de esto siempre estará en la educación. https://t.co/nMLUYXWFq9
apparently white parents are upset about the “i can’t breathe “ break on nickelodeon because it scares their kids?????? ma’am black kids have been living in fear before they learned the word fear STFU
just wanna surface this for all the white parents saying their children are scared from the nickelodeon “i can’t breathe” commercial. HOW DO YOU THINK SHE FEELS? THIS LITTLE GIRL SHOULD NOT HAVE TO FEEL OR SAY ANY OF THIS!! #BLM #BlackOutTuesdsy https://t.co/t4zflBrEBS
All these parents mad saying there kid got scared of Nickelodeon having a black screen clearly ain’t never watched courage the cowardly dog
This is a big misunderstanding!
Im glad nickelodeon is speaking out on the situation, but the reason why i was mad is because they should have used a different ad. The ad could potentially give little kids nightmares, since most people that watch nick are little kids
