A QAnon-supporting mum who expressed outrage over a Nickelodeon voucher intended to underline the police killing of George Floyd was roasted off of the internet on Tuesday.
Added the sound of heavy breathing along with the words &ldquo. ”
Nickelodeon played with this for 46sec and 8min. Those of you saying this scared your children are mistaken. There’s way scarier things on TV (e.g., the news). Your problem with this is that the fact that your children are now asking questions you don’t want/know to reply pic.twitter.com/1gyUXPqQYT

The scene played out over Nickelodeon for 8 minutes and 36 seconds, intended to signify the amount of time Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin spent with his knee on Floyd’s neck.
Over Nickelodeon & rsquo, the woman went in a tweet ;s decision.
“Ok, I’m PISSED! While my child is watching a series?!!!! why is this shit only popping up on Nickelodeon ” she tweeted. “My 8 year old is scared to death!!! F*CK YOU MEDIA!!! F*CK YOU!!! U are DONE! ”
The tweet was finished with a series of hashtags such as #QAnon, #QArmy, and #WWG1WGA.
Even though the lady asked her to & ldquo; stop, & rdquo and & rsquo child was supposedly & ldquo; scared & rdquo; of the video; the mother continued documenting the clip.
“I shall [stop]rdquo, &, I just wanna see what & rsquo; s happening here ; the mother says.
Oh, your white child is scared of #BlackLivesMatter messages on his Nickelodeon show? Boo Fucking Hoo. Imagine the kids that are scared for their own safety. Black kids are scared for their fathers and mothers, brothers, and sisters stepping foot outside their home. pic.twitter.com/pf7AkCVdxn

Twitter users responded by criticizing and mocking the mother.
“Nickelodeon blacked out their network in honor of #GeorgeFloyd for 8 minutes and people are really screaming for traumatizing their children,&rdquo. “YOUR children should know and Black children are being shot and killed by police and be educated anti-racism. Also you’re racist. ”
Her own Twitter profile was eventually deleted by the woman in response to the backlash.
However, rsquo & the mother wasn’t the only one to complain. Someone on Facebook complained about the video .
“This is not the platform for this whatsoever,&rdquo. “The average age of the children that watch your channel are below the age of 12 and if anything all your [sic] doing is scaring children and that is just wrong. ”
Nickelodeon was quick to respond.
“Unfortunately, some children live in fear daily,” the firm said. “It’s our job to use our platform to be sure their voices are heard and their stories are told. ”
Nickelodeon’s promo came as part of “Blackout Tuesday,” which saw major corporations weigh in on the killing of Floyd and police brutality.
