Freeform Upsets 'Shadowhunters' Fans During 'Toy Story' Pop-Up Telecast

Freeform Upsets 'Shadowhunters' Fans During 'Toy Story' Pop-Up Telecast

Shadowhunters fans are quite upset after Friday night’s (December 14) telecast of Toy Story on Freeform.

The network aired a pop-up version of the Disney/Pixar movie with different facts and tidbits about the film.

One thing that wasn’t about Toy Story though, was a certain scene that took a jab at Shadowhunters and it’s fandom.

During a scene where Woody asks an 8 Ball a question. The pop-up tidbit said, “Will Freeform save Shadowhunters if I keep tweeting about it?” and the 8 Ball said, “Don’t count on it.”

Fans were outraged after seeing that and took to social media to call out Freeform for being tacky, disrespectful, and more. The network cancelled the fan favorite show, despite an outcry from fans, the continuous #SaveShadowhunters campaign, and the show’s multiple write in nominations for the People’s Choice Awards.

Check out the scene below!

UPDATE: Freeform has responded and apologized via Twitter: “This was a mistake. We never intended to disrespect the Shadowhunters fandom. We apologize for this.”
