-NickJr has a new show called Made by Maddie that's making the news around the internet and the reason why is because is too awfully familiar to the Academy Awarded short "Hair Love" created by Black Author Matthew A. Cherry and Illustrated by Vashti Harrison.
-Following Backlash Production company has delete all picture of the white creator/producer that ripped off (allegedly) Matthew A. Cherry's work.
I’m assuming they removed the creator’s, Paula Rosenthal’s, picture from the production company’s website to hide the fact that a non-Black woman ripped off @MatthewACherry’s “Hair Love” for a major network. https://t.co/Lx2eX2L7Oe pic.twitter.com/pisR5XoZDW— Gennette Cordova (@GNCordova) September 2, 2020
-Matthew A. Cherry has retweeted the comparisons.
-This is crazy considering that it took Matthew A. Cherry to get a Kick Starter to be able to create and promote this story 3 years ago and it went on to be a huge success.
-Producer of Hair Love reacted by saying "I honestly just cannot get over a whole major corporation ripping off Hair Love. Matthew A. Cherry made me a whole Oscar winning producer and I am truly upset about this.

Mods I had to take out one of the tweets since Matthew A. Cherry removed the one I originally had so I replaced it with one of the Producer's tweets.
