Because everything is “woke” in 2020: Looney Tunes reboot will not allow Elmer Fudd to have a gun

Warner Bros is rebooting the Elmer Fudd cartoon and he will no longer be allowed to have firearms to hunt wabbits. How will he do his hunting so as to not glorify gun violence? With this:

Sticks of dynamite, anvils on the head and booby traps will still be featured in the series.

From the Yahoo story:

“We’re not doing guns,” said Peter Browngardt, executive producers of the series, in an interview with the New York Times. “But we can do cartoony violence – TNT, the Acme stuff.”

With the exception of the ban on guns, the cartoons are a throwback to a different time, he added. “We’re going through this wave of anti-bullying, ‘everyone needs to be friends’, ‘everyone needs to get along’. Looney Tunes is pretty much the antithesis of that. It’s two characters in conflict, sometimes getting pretty violent.”

But this is okay? (Never mind the falling anvils, axes and just falling… )

And attacking someone with a machete or dynamite is better and more morally acceptable than with a gun. How?
