A cartoon about alien robots intended for children is being ridiculed and excoriated online for introducing a non-binary robot character into a beloved franchise from the 1980s.
Among those posting videos from "Transformers: EarthSpark" was the Libs of TikTok account.
The short clip shows the "Nightshade" robot character tell a human character that its pronouns are they and them, and the human responds with more pronoun preferences. The character then goes on to say that they feel better whenever in the presence of another person who is non-binary.
“I know I’m safe when I’m with my friends or other non-binary people," the character says in the clip.
That clip garnered more than 8.6 million views on Twitter.
"Recent episode from the kid’s show Transformers: EarthSpark. They’re after your kids," wrote the Libs of TikTok account.
"This is DISGUSTING," replied Megyn Kelly.
"This is naked propaganda. But why would you want to encourage kids to be 'non-binary'?" read another popular tweet.
"Christian parents, are you monitoring your kids’ media intake? There simply cannot be unmonitored content for our young ones anymore. You must pre-screen everything you invite into your home," responded another critic.
"Woke activists are flooding kids shows with gender and trans content so that 'woke' gender ideology becomes the cultural air your children breath," read another tweet.
"Transformers: EarthSpark" is streaming on the Paramount+ online network.
The very popular "Transformers" franchise was first introduced as a Saturday morning cartoon in the 1980s and quickly became a favorite of Gen X. It was revived in a series of action-adventure movies decades later.
