Pepe Le Pew Creator Chuck Jones Daughter Speaks Out On Controversy Around The Looney Tunes Character

Linda Jones, daughter of Looney Tunes creator Chuck Jones, is speaking up about the controversy over Pepe Le Pew. According to a new report from TMZ, Linda Jones stated that she "strongly disagrees" with a recent NYT op-ed, which suggested that Pepe Le Pew's relentless pursuit of Penelope Pussycat reinforced certain aspects of rape culture. Linda Jones reportedly counters that notion by saying that people who watched the lothario skunk character never took away a message that harassing let alone raping people. Jones reportedly went so far as to point out that Pepe Le Pew never raped anyone in any of his cartoon shorts, and doesn't deserve to be canceled and kicked out of Space Jam 2.
