Al Sharpton vs. "The Boondocks"
The Rev. Al Sharpton is demanding an apology from Cartoon Network over last week’s episode of The Boondocks, “The Return of the King,” where the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., uses a racial epithet. Sharpton further demanded that the network “commit to pulling episodes that desecrate black historic figures.” A statement from Cartoon Network in response defended the episode of the show, but did not apologize or commit to pulling any future episodes.
