Dear Daniel,

Up to this point I have enjoyed your show, but violence against women is where the line is drawn for me. It’s not funny to depict bludgeoning a woman with a metal object, even if it’s just a cartoon and only a joke. It’s one thing to have a sense of humor about Disney characters, and the Disney parks.

Sincerely, 
A Former Listner
