'NCIS: New Orleans' Season 6: CBS show faces boycott after fans slam use of liberal propaganda against ICE and the government
While tonight's episode sees a Russian spy as an almost antagonist, last week's case was that of an ICE detention center that secretly dabbled in human trafficking.
'NCIS: New Orleans' fans are triggered and agitated once again, and this time it was about the show promoting liberal propaganda it seems.
Airing earlier on October 22 was the fifth episode of NCIS: New Orleans' season six and while Agent LaSalle was greeted with the tragic reality of his brother Cade's whereabout, things were pretty bittersweet with a happy ending for Lieutenant Max Landry. Cade was revealed to be dead after fraternizing with a gang of drug lords. Landry's girlfriend, on the other hand, turned out to be a spy, who was being blackmailed by the Russians. Yet somehow conservative fans are still calling parts of the show 'deplorable' for its recent plot points circling a lot around police brutality, especially those working for ICE.
While this episode sees a Russian spy as an almost antagonist, last week's case was that of an ICE detention center that secretly dabbled in human trafficking. And all of these extremely politically plots seem to have upset fans a lot, with them threatening to boycott the show simply. Taking to Twitter, user @maharru shared: "[...] NCIS painted @ICEgov as cilantro racist. It was a very very bad episode." Noting that CBS's news channel has always been similarly political inclined, user @RVLawson_Author expressed their disappointment tweeting: "It’s not enough for MSM like CBS to ruin the news, now they are using their tv series to push their propaganda. New Orleans was used to bash ICE and our government, so is officially out of my viewing schedule. #Banned"
Other fans took a lengthier process of expressing their frustration with the show, as @rsrusso17 shared: "I was so looking forward to this and they ruined it. What a but of leftwing liberal trash. Just another example of the entertainment industry trying to brainwash the masses. Painting conservatives as racist terrorists." Another 'NCIS: New Orleans' fan @DK_RELENTLESS chimed in with some expert protocol to boycott the show, sharing on Twitter: "If your favorite show (NCIS New Orleans?)gets too partisan or shoving propaganda, write a letter or comment on their Twitter wall. I threatened & gave them 1 more chance or I was never going to watch again. Many on there were saying the same."
'NCIS: New Orleans' season 6 airs on Tuesdays at 10 pm only on CBS.
