In case you haven't heard, President Trump signed the Preventing Animal Cruelty and Torture Act (PACT Act) into law. The PACT Act makes animal cruelty a felony offense and bans the creation and distribution of animal crushing content.

I honestly am very happy about this, as I, and probably many others, believe no act of cruelty or harm against anyone is ever protected by the 1st Amendment.

Anyways, as a result, we have updated the ToS for all of our websites and have updated the rules of this Poal sub to ban animal cruelty and animal crushing content. And we encourage many other companies and websites to do the same.

Are cartoons of the road runner crushing Wil-E with an anvil illegal now?

That's not the point of this ban at all. There's a huge difference between a cartoon and real life. Perhaps, if you read the new law we're doing this ban in compliance with, you would understand this.
