Today in "news you definitely weren't expecting to read", the people behind Paw Patrol (yes, the children's cartoon) have had to reassure the audience that the show has not been cancelled, following fake claims by the White House.

Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany today claimed during her briefing that Paw Patrol had been cancelled, as she criticised so-called "cancel culture".

McEnany said Donald Trump "is also appalled by cancel culture, and cancel culture specifically as it pertains to cops. We saw a few weeks ago that Paw Patrol, a cartoon show about cops, was cancelled".

"It is really unfortunate, because I stand with, the president stands with, the 53 per cent of Americans who believe police officers have the most important jobs in this country," she added.

The show's official account had to tweet: "No need to worry. PAW Patrol is not cancelled."

The cartoon show for children has not been dropped. In fact, it was renewed by Nickelodeon earlier this year.

The Paw Patrol tweet has gone viral, with Twitter users gobsmacked that a children's show has had to publicly fact-check White House information.

Marshall, Rubble, Chase, Rocky, Zuma and Skye will continue to "come and save the day" or whatever it is that they do "round Adventure Bay".
