Controversy regarding a character in the movie
Recently, when the Black Lives Matter movement was at its peak, the general public started showing resentment towards cops. They started losing hope in them as they seemed to be the forerunners in perpetuating institutional racism.
Following this, the protesters started objecting the way Chase, a police dog, was being portrayed. They called for the cancellation of the series as it glorified the “good cop” archetype. But these allegations were dismissed. But as a result, the cast was chosen with much care it has come out as one of the diverse ones.
