Adult Swim’s Toonami has been a staple of the anime community since its original creation in the 90s. Even when it came back from cancellation, it was to cheers and applause. Something so monumentally a part of the lives of so many people, we all remember the great heartwarming and supportive promos from Toonami’s host T.O.M..
Well, T.O.M. last night had some words of support for Black Lives Matter that were amazing to hear.
T.O.M. and Toonami’s Message:
A touching video that talks about how our favorite stories have been about people standing up for themselves against oppression, supporting members of our communities, and valuing the lives of those under attack. And it’s nice that as the grown-up version of the black kid who used to rush home after school to watch it, Toonami still has my back.
Thank you T.O.M., because as you said, Black Lives Matter.
Toonami airs every Saturday @ Midnight EST/PST on Cartoon Network/Adult Swim.
