Protest of ‘Work It’ works

Published Mar 23, 2012 9:54 PM

ABC television has pulled the situation comedy “Work It” from its lineup after only two shows and after the organization Boricuas for a Positive Image announced a demonstration, pictured here, against ABC and Disney. One of the key lines in an early show insulted Puerto Ricans by linking them with the illegal narcotics business. The demonstrators said that pulling the show is not enough. They demanded an apology and to meet with ABC executives to prevent such insults from occurring again, or they would keep protesting. They followed through with two protests in New York on March 15 — one outside ABC offices on 66th Street and Columbus Avenue and one in front of the Disney store at 47th Street and Seventh Avenue.
