MTV2 May Nix Cartoon Featuring Snoop Dogg, Women on Leashes

The MTV2 network said it had not decided whether it will ever again air a cartoon criticized as offensive for depicting women being led around on leashes.

It's also not certain whether the series, "Where My Dogs At?" will come back for a second season, spokesman Jeff Castaneda said Wednesday. Its first season ended during the last week of July.

One episode, aired in the early afternoon, featured an appearance by a cartoon Snoop Dogg accompanied by two women in neck collars and chains. MTV2 said the episode was a satire of an actual Snoop appearance where women were in collars and chains.

"We certainly do not condone Snoop's actions and the goal was to take aim at that incident for its insensitivity and outrageousness," Castaneda said. "Even one of the dogs, a main character on the show, states, 'I find that degrading and I am a dog."'

Lisa Fager, founder of a watchdog group Industry Ears that complained about the episode, did not return messages for comment left by The Associated Press.
